Why should nuclear labs participate in the ImageGuide Registry?
Analyze Performance: Demonstrate Value
It is essential that medical professionals partake in quality improvement initiatives to advance clinical practice, enhance patient care, and justify services to payers and policymakers.  The ImageGuide Registry provides a standardized means of collecting data related to SPECT and PET cardiac imaging studies, which is integral to providing the ability to analyze performance on a meaningful level.   

Keep up with Regulatory Requirements
In addition to improving practice, this valuable information, in conjunction with the nomination of ImageGuide to become a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR), will help physicians successfully fulfill regulatory requirements such as the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), formerly Quality Reporting System (PQRS).  The designation as a QCDR allows ASNC to develop its own performance measures that capture a greater level of granularity and are more meaningful to the profession than traditional MIPS measures.
Contribute to Healthcare Reform
It is imperative that the nuclear cardiology profession take ownership of how its providers are being measured to ensure that the quality improvement initiatives performed are meaningful to the profession. Contributing to the registry will help providers proactively contribute to healthcare reform while improving performance at the individual and institutional levels.

Enroll in ImageGuide today to:
  • Gain access to benchmark reports and standardized performance data
  • Enhance patient care and improve lab efficiency
  • Successfully participate in regulatory programs and avoid negative payment adjustments on Medicare Part B services
  • Report on nuclear cardiology-specific performance measures under MIPS
  • Demonstrate appropriate use of nuclear imaging tests to payers

Web-based Data Collection Tool

ImageGuide has developed a data collection tool for institutions to enter imaging study data directly into the registry. ASNC estimates each imaging study will take approximately 2-3 minutes to enter into the web, and staff/support personnel may be able to assist with data entry.

Systems Integrator
It may be possible to automatically extract and submit data from your EHR/EMR/Imaging System to the registry with assistance from FigMD. To see if you qualify for this data submission method, please complete our technology questionnaire and return to imageguide@asnc.org
