The AUGS Urogynecology Quality Registry, AQUIRE, is a national urogynecology-focused registry open to all physician members of AUGS that is designed to measure and report healthcare quality and patient outcomes. The Registry has been developed by urogynecologists for urogynecologists. Through the aggregation and organization of clinical- and patient-reported outcomes, the Registry will provide participants with benchmarking tools to monitor outcomes compared to peers and identify areas for continued improvement.
AQUIRE is a Qualified Clinical Data Registry and Specialty Registry. The registry meets CMS requirements for MIPS reporting per MACRA, and MOC Part IV. QCDRs are key vehicles to automate the reporting of data to qualify for Medicare reimbursement. The use of QCDRs is encouraged to report new and innovative quality measures. CMS allows QCDRs to report data on all MIPS categories with the hope that submitting all MIPS data through QCDRs will reduce reporting burden and positively affect performance scores. Private payers are also moving to collect these quality measures to evaluate providers.
