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 psychiatrist 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. For more on the development and benefits of APA's registry, read the Psychiatric News story .
APA is currently seeking member volunteers. If you’re interested in participating in the pilot project, fill out this survey.
Find answers to questions about accessing and using data, security and privacy, cost and requirements, and how to enroll.
APA members who have questions or comments about the development of the mental health clinical data registry are invited to send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
