The NeuroPoint Alliance, Inc. (NPA) and Your Practice: Using Registries to Enhance Quality, Reimbursement, Certification and Clinical Research

Sunday, April 14 | 7:30 am - 4:30 pm |

This course explores the varied uses of registry data for patient care, quality improvement, clinical research, education and revenue enhancement. NPA initiatives, such as the Quality Outcomes Database (QOD) spine and cerebrovascular registries, the Registry for the Advancement of DBS Therapy in Parkinson’s Disease (RAD-PD) and the Stereotactic Radiosurgery Registry are used to demonstrate how your organization can benefit from participation in these registries. This course benefits neurosurgeons, quality managers, clinical personnel and data coordinators.
