This phase of the pilot has come to a close with a total of 21 practices and 298 practitioners in six academic sites and 15 private practices with 12 different EHR systems. These practices are now entering various phases of data extraction and review of measures data and analysis. Five pilot practices have begun analyzing their clinical data.

Regent’s full launch

Regent_Wide_LogoRegent opened to the full membership for contracting on July 25, 2016, with promotions focused on encouraging Members and practices to execute contracts by September 30, 2016, in order to secure one year of free access to Regent for their providers.

In tandem with these targeted offerings, Regent was promoted throughout the past year including at the AAO-HNSF 2016  Annual Meeting & OTO EXPOSM in San Diego, CA. The Regent booth was busy as Members sought to execute contracts prior to the September 30 deadline. During the Regent Miniseminar titled “The Future Is Now, Regent: The first ENT Clinical Data Registry” Members learned more about the formation and value of the Regent registry and heard first-hand reflections from a private practice involved in the Regent pilot and what the future holds for registry technology.

Regent is here: get on board!

0360Regent continues to grow. The registry currently has 101 total practice sites on board  representing 473 practitioners and preparing for measures data extraction in time for PQRS 2016 reporting.

With MIPS 2017 reporting beginning soon, we urge Members to get started on  contracts now to be ready for the new  reporting paradigm.
