Quality reporting reconciliation process complete

AQI has completed the quality reporting reconciliation process in which your practice's order, with the number and type of Eligible Clinicians (i.e. physician or CRNA), is compared to the information submitted to NACOR in your practice's data file. For each data file submitted, AQI confirms the membership status of each EC to determine if s/he is eligible to receive the ASA member benefit rate for NACOR Quality Reporting.

Please note if ASA/AQI does not receive your payment by March 30, 2019, your practice's data may not be submitted to CMS. For questions regarding the specific ECs that the roster represents, please contact Margaret Bussan at 847-268-9231 or Please call Linda Burkart, ASA Senior Accounting Clerk, at 847-268-9210 with credit card payments.

Register for 2019 NACOR Reporting

Quality reporting practices can now begin the enrollment process for 2019 NACOR Quality Reporting by completing the new online order form.

AQI's NACOR quality reporting options include the following new offerings in 2019 to ensure that NACOR remains the leader in anesthesia - Quality Concierge, NACOR Quality Reporting and NACOR Benchmarking. NACOR Basic does not include quality reporting.

To better address individual and practice needs, AQI will add enhanced dashboards for better analysis, opportunities to view benchmarked data, and the chance for eligible physicians to earn MOCA Part IV credit for reviewing data for AQI Measure 59: Multimodal.

These new products and services will result in a change in the NACOR pricing structure for 2019. ASA members and NACOR participants will see a fee adjustment in 2019 for NACOR Benchmarking and NACOR Quality Reporting. NACOR Basic remains a complimentary member benefit and pricing for NACOR Quality Concierge is unchanged in 2019.
