Register for 2022 NACOR reporting

Quality reporting practices can now begin the enrollment process for the Anesthesia Quality Institute's (AQI) 2022 NACOR Quality Reporting by completing the 2022 online order form. NACOR is a designated QR and QCDR for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' Quality Payment Program. Practices who can only report MIPS measures should register for the Qualified Registry. Practices participating with AQI's Quality Concierge do not need to register.

AQI's NACOR quality reporting options include the following offerings in 2022 to ensure that NACOR remains the leader in anesthesiology: Quality Concierge, NACOR Quality Reporting, NACOR Benchmarking and NACOR Basic.

For more information, please email askaqi@asahq.org.

Review your NACOR dashboard

Remember to review your 2022 quality reports in the NACOR dashboard. For practices that have uploaded a new data file, AQI encourages a member of your practice to review the NACOR dashboard as it allows you to monitor your providers' performance, as well as pinpoint any problems with the data and make necessary corrections prior to data submission deadlines.

Data completeness requirements for the 2022 MIPS Performance Period are:

  • Submit 12 months of data (January – December 2022).
  • Report a minimum of six measures with at least one outcome or high priority measure.
  • Measure must meet the 20-case minimum to be scored.
  • Reporting rate must be at least 70% of all eligible cases across all payers for each measure reported.

As a reminder, section 8 of the Addendum for Quality Reporting to the NACOR Participation Agreement states that your practice "and each EC agree, and Participant shall require each EC, to review his/her measure results in AQI at least four times a year and provide timely feedback to AQI on the measures that will be reported on the EC's behalf."

If there are questions about the dashboard results, submit a ticket to nacorsupport@asahq.org.
