RPA Kidney Quality Improvement Registry

The RPA Registry is designed for nephrology practitioners to foster performance improvement and improve outcomes in the care of patients with kidney disease. A CMS-approved Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR), the RPA Registry collects data for the purpose of patient and disease tracking to foster improvement in the quality of care provided to patients and is not limited to MIPS measures.

As the only nephrology-specific QCDR, the RPA Registry will have the data with which to develop and test measures, and thus enabling RPA the capacity to set the standards for quality renal care in the US.

Value of the RPA Registry to Nephrology Practitioners:

  • MIPS Quality Measures: Satisfy MIPS quality measure reporting using clinically-relevant kidney disease measures through the RPA Registry. View data over time and select patients for MIPS reporting. Allows for reporting on both MIPS and custom RPA measures to satisfy CMS’ quality measure requirements. 
  • Promoting Interoperability: Fulfill the Specialized Registry Promoting Interoperability Measure.
  • Allscripts, Aprima, Braintree, NextGen, Quest Diagnostics/Care360, and STI Chart Maker users may access the registry through their EHRs. Please verify what measures your EHR supports prior to entering an agreement; not all EHRs support all the measures in the RPA Registry. 
  • NephroChoice by iSalus, Acumen, Falcon and Greenway users should contact their EHR representative for more information.
  • Improvement Activities: Track attestation by activity. 
  • Real-time, customized continuous performance monitors for providers and practices.
  • Performance gap analysis and the identification patient outliers.
    • Manage the health of your patient population by identifying individual patients based upon measure results.
