“We add a new registry almost every year [to our Q-Centrix solutions]. The need for clinical quality data is so great, and it will only grow.”
— Karlene Strayer, manager, quality data, Mississippi Baptist Medical Center
Simplify your life
While registry data abstraction was once assigned as a part-time responsibility to quality managers or nurses within the department, things have changed. Today each registry has unique credentialing requirements. Finding and maintaining that type of expertise is difficult—for some even impossible. And, as the number and types of clinical data registries continue to grow, the talent pool of qualified clinical registrars is rapidly shrinking. Adding to the complexity, participants must use a separate vendor tool for each registry. The time for a more accurate and efficient registry abstraction and data management solution is now.
66% of healthcare executives expect to increase clinical registry participation in the next 5 years.

We make the perfect team
Q-Centrix understands that the two greatest threats to registry data quality—variability in case completeness and data accuracy—can be overcome with uniquely designed data abstraction technology and expert personnel. After hiring more than 800 quality information specialists from throughout the country, we know how to recruit and onboard them better than anyone in the industry. In fact, our lean processes allow us to seamlessly staff each team with the skill set required for each unique registry.
“The largest single cost to hospitals for clinical registries is that of data management personnel.”— ACC/AHA/STS Statement on the Future of Registries and the Performance Measurement Enterprise
Registries and Value-Based Care
Registries are playing a critical role in healthcare’s shift to value-based care. Because of their proficiency in assessing the effectiveness and value of care, hospitals and clinicians are increasingly using registries in their quality improvement efforts. Certain registries may also be used for reporting to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' Quality Payment Program, including for measures related to commonly treated diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.
We’re continuously innovating
Demonstrating our commitment to improving efficiency through innovation, we’re introducing artificial intelligence (AI) into our clinical data registry solutions. Certain AI technologies are capable of identifying human language and information patterns. Since up to 80% of medical record data can be unstructured information, proper AI deployment in registry abstraction can produce significant cost savings through speedier, more-accurate data abstraction and submission. We also work with major electronic medical record platforms for seamless information sharing across systems.
A few industry friends
Q Centrix collaborates with leading organizations in the industry to offer a seamless registry abstraction and data management solution for their members. In addition, our friendships allow our team optimal access to updates, education, and other industry experts.
The American College of Cardiology (ACC)
Q Centrix has partnered with more than 150 hospitals on their NCDR participation, resulting in over 200,000 NCDR data transactions since 2013. That’s one of the many reasons Q Centrix is the only NCDR compatible data abstraction and management provider! We help hospitals get the most out of their NCDR participation by allowing them to truly understand their performance so they may improve quality of care.
American Heart Association (AHA)
One-third of Q-Centrix clinical registry partner hospitals use our GWTG-Stroke solution, resulting in more than 40,000 GWTG-Stroke case transactions a year. So it’s only fitting that the AHA selected our data management technology and team to support the American Heart Association’s Get with the Guidelines® quality improvement program.
