The Anesthesia Quality Institute (AQI) is home to the National Anesthesia Clinical Outcomes Registry (NACOR), a data warehouse designated as a Qualified Registry (QR) and a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). With more than 60 million cases, AQI NACOR’s clinical data provides an evidence-based rationale that informs treatment choices and opens the door to meaningful quality improvement and practice benchmarking. Adding your own data provides access to extensive performance-optimizing tools, as well as metrics that help you demonstrate real value.
The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) and AQI added more features and benefits to NACOR in 2019 to better address individual and practice needs. AQI added enhanced dashboards for better analysis, opportunities to view benchmarked data, and the chance for eligible physicians to earn MOCA Part IV credit for reviewing data. ASA added these offerings to ensure NACOR remains the leader in the specialty of anesthesia. NACOR allows anesthesiologists and their practices to continue customizing data, meet federal quality reporting requirements, and support local quality improvement initiatives.
