Schedule a Reminder to Review Your NACOR Dashboard

AQI encourages physician and staff quality champions to review their group’s NACOR dashboard each month. Routine dashboard reviews will help champions monitor their group’s performance as well as pinpoint any problems or errors with submitted data files.

If your group is reporting MIPS, data completeness requirements for 2023 include:

  • Submitting 12 months of data (January – December 2023).
  • Reporting a minimum of six measures with at least one outcome or high priority measure. For reporting a MIPS Value Pathway (MVP), you must report at least four measures from the MVP measure set.
  • Ensuring each measure has at least a 20-case minimum.
  • Reporting 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

Complete ASA's Conversion Factor Survey

Every year, ASA conducts a survey of anesthesia conversion factors (payment per ASA unit) used by commercial payors across the country. The results of this survey provide critical context as individual anesthesia practices assess their position in the overall marketplace. Information in this survey will remain anonymous.

If you are the clinical leader for your group practice, please coordinate with your administrative staff to complete the survey found at the link below. You do not need to have all of your billing data available to begin the survey. Once you have entered the clinical details for your group, the survey form can be forwarded to your billing company for entry of the required claims information.

If you are not the clinical leader for your group practice, please forward this information to that individual and indicate that you would like your group to participate this year.

Click here to access the survey. More details can be found in the “Survey Instructions” tab of the spreadsheet. Please contact Helen Olkaba, ASA's Director of Payment and Practice Management ( with any questions.
