    My groups are interested in the PQRI Registries, but I can't find anyone in my area that has used them. So, I would like opinions and/or comments from those of you who used the Registry option in 2008 or has started using one in 2009. I have visited several of the qualified ones that are listed on the CMS website, but they only tell you the high points.

    Thanks for your help,

    We just started using a registry this year for our CVT surgeons.

    I absolutely love it. Our CVT surgeons were already members of STS and our quality department was already entering in all the information needed for PQRI in the database anyway. So all I had to do was have the doctors sign the form stating they want to participate in PQRI, and they (STS) took it from there.

    Hopefully everything will work out and we will get our money as well. Before we started I did research several other registries and only a few were helpful to me. A couple never did return my calls.
