What is the AAAAI Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Quality Clinical Data Registry?
The AAAAI Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Quality Clinical Data Registry, in collaboration with CECity, is intended for physicians specializing in Allergy/Immunology (AAAAI members & non-members) to foster performance improvement and improve outcomes in the care of patients with allergies, asthma, immune deficiencies and other immunologic diseases. The registry will provide participating providers with:
  • Timely custom continuous performance monitors
  • Performance gap analysis and patient outlier identification
  • Access to improvement interventions to close performance gaps including patient care management tools; targeted education; resources and other evidence-based interventions
  • Comparison versus registry benchmarks and peer-to-peer comparison
How does the registry work?
The AAAAI Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Quality Clinical Data Registry is comprised of 31 quality measures, including measures for allergy immunotherapy developed by the Joint Task Force on Quality Performance Measures (approved by the AAAAI and ACAAI); PQRS asthma measures modified to remove the upper age limit; and a modified asthma care measure developed by Minnesota Community Measurement. Data can be uploaded or entered manually. Each measure has predefined data elements and data definitions found in the PDF below.

My Performance
Continuously view your results in this registry to identify opportunities to improve clinical care. This organized feedback allows you to immediately identify gaps in specific quality measures and focus your efforts there. Graphic tracking of your performance gives you the ability to look at trends over time and determine if your efforts to improve resulted in better quality care. Through this registry you can also compare yourself to others in practice across the country.
Patient Outliers
Manage the health of your patient population by identifying individual patients based upon measure results that are outside the desired measures. Identify opportunities to improve care by reviewing the results of your performance across your patient population. Use the information to address clinical quality gaps in a timely manner. Consider and choose interventions that can lead to sustainable practice improvement for your aggregate performance, and which will help reduce the number of patient outliers in the future.
Improvement
The registry dynamically identifies possible interventions for improvement based on clinical quality gaps found through calculating selected quality measures. Use results of frequent data feeds to review your performance and determine quickly the impact of an improvement intervention. Results are presented graphically to identify trends in performance.
How can I leverage the registry for other quality reporting programs?
Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS)

The AAAAI Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Quality Clinical Data Registry in collaboration with CECity, is approved by CMS as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR). A QCDR is a registry comprised of PQRS and/or non PQRS-approved measures which qualifies as a CMS-approved reporting tool for PQRS. The Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Quality Clinical Data Registry is a QCDR with 31 quality measures, 16 of which are custom quality measures designed specifically for practitioners providing care for patients with allergies, asthma, immune deficiencies and other immunologic diseases.

  Notice: Eligible Professionals seeking to satisfy the clinical quality measure (CQM) component of the Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program through the AAAAI Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Quality Clinical Data Registry must contact CECity to initiate such services. CQM reporting is not an automatic result of participation in the AAAAI Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Quality Clinical Data Registry . If you are interested in CQM reporting please contact us.

NEW - GPRO (Group Practice Reporting Option) for PQRS
New for 2016, group practices of 2 or more EPs participating via GPRO have the option to report quality measures via a QCDR. A PQRS group practice under 2016 PQRS is defined as a single Tax Identification Number (TIN) with 2 or more individual EPs who have reassigned their billing rights to the TIN. PQRS group practices are analyzed at the TIN level; therefore, all EPs (NPIs) under the group’s TIN will be taken into account for the 2016 PQRS analysis.

  Eligible Professionals that choose to participate in the PQRS as a group practice must inform CMS of their election by registering to participate in the 2016 PQRS GPRO between April 1, 2016 and June 30, 2016. This is an annual election and participation in the PQRS as a group in years prior is not carried forward. Registration must be completed online through the Physician Value Modifier (PV) - PQRS Registration System. For additional information on PQRS group practice QCDR registration and requirements please refer to the "2016 PQRS GPRO Registration Quick Reference Guide" on the CMS PQRS GPRO Registration site.
