The Q-Centrix Universal Registry solution is the first of its kind to unite technology with expert-led data management for the entire registry-encounter lifecycle.

CHICAGO, January 22, 2018 – Advancing its commitment to providing the most efficient, cost-effective, and innovative solutions in the field of healthcare quality, Q-Centrix is outpacing other vendors in providing hospitals with the most comprehensive clinical data registry reporting solutions in the field. The Q-Centrix Universal Registry Solution is the first of its kind to enhance clinical expertise with market-leading technology to ensure seamless, effective registry data management and submission.

“Recently received registry submission certifications have placed Q-Centrix in the unique position of being the only quality data solutions provider in the field to offer an application that unites technology with expert-led data management in each of the big three cardiovascular registry suites and other prevailing registry programs,” said Brian Foy, Q-Centrix Chief Product Officer. “This opens the door for greater efficiency for hospitals in reporting on many of the most prevalent care processes, which can lead to lower costs, improved patient outcomes, and even lives saved.”

The Q-Centrix Universal Registry Solution manages the entire registry-encounter lifecycle – from patient admissions and data capture to submission and reporting –  in an easy, efficient and real-time manner. It exists as an application within the company’s broader quality technology platform called Q-Apps®. The approach allows Q-Centrix’s patent-pending quality solutions technology to augment the clinical intelligence and efficiency of the industry’s largest and broadest team of nurse-educated Quality Information SpecialistsSM – more than 800 quality experts acting as virtual extensions of quality departments within more than 450 hospitals. These experts review, analyze, and manage quality data through to submission.

“Our solution is driven by a unique relationship between our technology and our team that allows for immediate and positive changes that promptly shape the way patient care is improved,” said Foy. “Paired with an opportunity to streamline reporting to multiple registries, our approach results in improved efficiencies that can lead to greater quality reporting cost savings at a time when hospitals are operating on increasingly narrow margins or facing other economic pressures.”

The ongoing transformational shift to value-based care in healthcare is resulting in increased use of quality and clinical performance measures for many purposes, including reimbursement, penalties, accountability, outcomes, reputation, and cost reduction. As a result, clinical registry participation is expected to grow. A recent report commissioned by Q-Centrix found the average hospital participates in five to 10 registries and two out of three hospital executives surveyed expect to increase clinical registry participation in the next five years.

“To thrive in this evolving healthcare and payment environment, hospitals must either direct more staff time toward quality reporting or find innovative methods for meeting their quality reporting demands,” said Foy. “Our comprehensive quality data management approach aims to make it significantly easier for doctors and nurses to focus on patient care instead of being distracted by data management.”

Since launching, the Q-Centrix Universal Registry solution has swiftly grown its submission certifications. It currently is authorized for submission to eight registries across four major registry suites.

“Our solution’s patent-pending architecture allows for the rapid deployment of current and future registries,” said Foy. “This means if a hospital is interested in a registry for which we’re still acquiring submission authorization, there is a very good chance we will have that authorization soon.”
