APA mental health registry being developed
APA is committed to helping psychiatrists meet new Medicare quality reporting requirements and maintain professional recertification. The creation of a mental health registry will:
- help psychiatrists avoid payment penalties and instead achieve bonuses for meeting CMS quality reporting requirements
- reduce the burden of submitting Performance-in-Practice data and obtaining ABPN MOC Part IV credit to maintain board certification and hospital credentialing
The Board of Trustees in early 2016 approved the development and implementation of a mental health clinical data registry. APA's registry is in the initial stages of development.
