The Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) has launched the ONS Quality Improvement Registry, a qualified clinical data registry (QCDR) that practices can use to benchmark and improve patient outcomes. A QCDR enables the collection and submission of Physician Quality Reporting Systems (PQRS) quality measures data on behalf of eligible professionals, physicians, advanced practice nurses, and other clinicians who can independently bill Medicare.
ONS quality measures, developed and tested through a contract with The Joint Commission, supported through a grant to the ONS Foundation by the Breast Cancer Fund of the National Philanthropic Trust, are included in the registry.
The ONS Quality Improvement Registry is one of only 36 QCDRs approved nationally by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and is offered through CECity®, health care’s leading provider of cloud-based registry platforms for performance improvement, value-based payment, and professionalism. The registry collects medical and clinical data for the purpose of patient and disease tracking to foster improvement in the quality of care provided to patients. Providers who successfully submit quality data to CMS under the PQRS reporting program are eligible to seek incentive payments and avoid payment penalties. The CMS-approved quality measures available only through the ONS Quality Improvement Registry can also be used for PQRS reporting. 
“Registering and using the ONS Quality Improvement Registry will enable participants to use ONS’s quality measures to improve their practices through benchmarking their results with similar practices. The registry links directly to ONS resources which can help improve performance,” said Brenda Nevidjon, RN, MSN, FAAN, chief executive officer of ONS. “Participating in a QCDR advances the provision of quality cancer care, which is a central focus of ONS’s mission."
Register today for the ONS Quality Improvement Registry and find out how well your institution handles ambulatory chemotherapy and post-treatment care for breast cancer survivors.
