ASNC and ASE Announce 2019 QCDR Designation for ImageGuide Registry

The American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC) and the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) are pleased to announce that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have approved the ImageGuide Registry® as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) for 2019. The designation as a QCDR allows the ImageGuide Registry to submit provider data to meet reporting requirements under the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) for the 2019 reporting year. The ImageGuide Registry has been recognized annually as a QCDR since 2015.
The ImageGuide Registry is the first national registry for non-invasive cardiac imaging and was developed and launched by ASNC in 2015. As a joint collaboration between ASNC and ASE, the ImageGuide Registry supports both nuclear cardiology and echocardiography laboratories under separate modules, ImageGuideNuclear and ImageGuideEcho, which provide the ability to assess performance and develop the tools necessary to improve patient safety and outcomes, practice transformation, and innovation through ongoing data collection and quality improvement.

“The five-time recognition of the ImageGuide Registry as a QCDR is a true outcome measure demonstrating the quality and importance of the ImageGuide data and its impact on the practice of cardiac imaging for ASNC and ASE members,” says Peter L. Tilkemeier, MD, MASNC, Chair of the ImageGuide Registry Oversight Committee.
