NuVasive's SpineTRACK Registry participants can now earn Medicare payment incentives — 3 insights

Written by Shayna Korol | February 21, 2018 | Print  |

CMS designated NuVasive's SpineTRACK Registry as a qualified clinical data registry for the 2018 Merit-based Incentive Payment System reporting year. Participants can now use SpineTRACK to earn Medicare payment incentives.

Here are three insights:

 

1. Established in 2011, the SpineTRACK Registry is a NuVasive-sponsored collaborative data collection and quality improvement solution for spine practices which generates real-time reports for better treatment decisions making. The registry can also help patients track their progress to better understand treatment benefits, and hospitals can use the tool to evaluate outcome variations.

 

2. As a qualified clinical data registry, SpineTRACK participants are now eligible for MIPS benefits. MIPS streamlines the physician quality reporting system, the value-based payment modifier program and the Medicare EHR incentive program into a single payment program.

 

3. More than 9,500 patients have been enrolled in SpineTRACK and surgeons have developed several peer-reviewed papers based on the data.

 

"SpineTRACK is a unique differentiator for NuVasive and is the longest-running spine outcomes database sponsored by any spine company," said Matt Link, executive vice president of strategy, technology and corporate development for NuVasive.
