Optimize Patient Outcomes
Navigate QPP MIPS Reporting Requirements
Make Discoveries that Advance Rheumatology
Demonstrate the Value of Rheumatology to Key Influencers
RISE is the first and largest electronic health record (EHR)-enabled rheumatology registry in the United States. A HIPAA-compliant QCDR, RISE attracts widespread participation among rheumatology clinicians and providers. With more than 1,000 rheumatology clinicians and 2.4 million patients, RISE plays an instrumental role in advancing the specialty through improving care and expanding research.
RISE helps rheumatology clinicians and health care providers evaluate the quality of care delivered to patients and identify opportunities for improvement. With clear national and RISE benchmarks for easy comparison, clinicians use the RISE dashboard to track performance down to the individual patient level. Using RISE’s QCDR measures, clinicians can evaluate the quality of their patient care through rheumatology-specific measures.
