Second Annual Full-day NeuroPoint Registry Course

The NeuroPoint Alliance (NPA) is pleased to announce the second annual full-day registry course being held in conjunction with the 2019 AANS Annual Scientific Meeting on Sunday, April 14, from 7:30 a.m to 4:30 p.m. at the San Diego Convention Center. NPA initiatives, such as the Stereotactic Radiosurgery Registry (SRS), the Quality Outcomes Database (QOD) spine and neurovascular registries, along with the Registry for the Advancement of DBS Therapy in Parkinson’s Disease (RAD-PD), will be used to demonstrate how your organization can benefit from participation in these registries and will be of benefit to neurosurgeons, quality managers, clinical personnel and data coordinators.

Course faculty include Robert Harbaugh, MD, FAANS; Anthony Asher, MD, FAANS; Kevin Foley, MD, FAANS; Praveen Mummaneni, MD, FAANS; James McInerney, MD, FAANS; Jason Sheehan, MD, PhD, FAANS; Ralph Reeder, MD, FAANS; Mohamad Bydon, MD, FAANS; Brad Zacharia, MD, FAANS; and John Knightly, MD, FAANS. Also presenting will be Sean Rundell, PT, DPT, PhD, of the University of Washington; Mary Amann of Washington University in St. Louis; and Mary Cloninger of Carolinas Neurosurgery and Spine Associates (CNSA) in Charlotte, N.C.

The morning segment will focus on the varied uses of registry data for patient care, quality improvement, clinical research, education and revenue enhancement. The afternoon segment includes break-out sessions exploring each of these areas in greater detail. Current participants in the various NPA registry programs are eligible to receive a discounted registration rate for this highly informative course. Members of the Neurosurgery Executives Resource Value & Education Society (NERVES) are also eligible to receive special pricing for the full-day course. Registration opens November 1, 2018.
