“Physicians prefer to have as little interaction with the registry as possible, so reducing their time spent entering VQI data was a major benefit”

— Dr. Larry W. Kraiss, M.D., Chief, Division of Vascular Surgery, University of Utah Health Care

As the popularity of registries rise, so do the complexities of the data required. In fact, with many registries requiring upwards of 100 data points for each patient, participation can seem impossible. To thrive, hospitals must either direct more staff time toward clinical data reporting or find innovative methods for meeting their data management demands. As the leader in clinical performance measures, our solution breaks down the barriers to registry participation. Our registry abstraction and data management solution enables hospitals, health systems and physicians to assess the effectiveness of their practices and advance efforts to deliver evidence-based care.

How It Works:


A patient list is shared with the QIS team.


Cases are abstracted from the EHR into the vendor tool.


The data is sent to the partner for review and submission.


Teams analyze the data via the Q‑Card℠.

Partnering with physician groups

The Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) touches on other CMS programs that require quality reporting, such as the EHR Incentive Program, the Medicare Shared Savings Program, and the Value-Based Payment Modifier. That’s why you need an expert in the quality data management industry. Partner with Q-Centrix—the leader—and avoid complex coding and cumbersome penalties.

“Q‑Centrix resources allowed us to take action based on the data and truly improve outcomes. We’ve seen great success using Q‑Centrix for Get With the Guidelines—Stroke Registry Abstraction.”

— Wendy Barrilleaux, director, comprehensive stroke services, St. Dominic-Jackson Memorial Hospital
