RISE for Practices

Improve Care with RISE

The RISE registry helps practices and healthcare providers identify ways improve the care experience and patients' health. Through the RISE dashboard, you can track your performance down to the patient level on various quality measures and see how you compare to peers nationally.

Intuitive Tracking for Quality Improvement

The RISE registry dashboard is available online and is easy to use for performance tracking. Quality performance for value-based care will be more imperative as the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and private payors continue to move towards value-based care reimbursement. The RISE registry offers users the opportunity to exceed reporting requirements, increase the value of your patient care and strategically improve outcomes.

Simple, Accessible Design

A core feature of RISE is that it automatically collects information from integrated electronic health records (EHR) systems. Once users and RISE staff work together to ensure data flows properly, RISE handles all ongoing maintenance with feedback from the practices. Also, RISE can collect and analyze both structured and unstructured data, so you don’t necessarily need to change your workflow or the ways you are documenting your data to see your quality performance. The dashboard is online, making it available year-round.

Exceed MIPS Requirements

The RISE registry offers the option for RISE practices to report for the Quality Payment Program (QPP) Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), as required by CMS. RISE users may send data to the CMS for all three MIPS categories which require submission: Quality, Promoting Interoperability, and Improvement Activities. In addition, the RISE staff offers personalized, expert support and guidance through the MIPS program requirements.

Rheumatology-Specific Quality Measures

Because RISE is a designated Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) per the CMS, you can submit RISE’s QCDR measures to the CMS via the MIPS pathway. Participating providers can monitor and track their performances on ACR-created rheumatology-specific QCDR measures and QPP MIPS eCQM/CQM measures. RISE’s QCDR measures are tailored for rheumatology, giving users a targeted understanding of the value of their patient care. Providers can only access and track their performance on the RISE dashboard.

No Extra Investment

RISE is free for all ACR and ARP members. Because RISE personalizes our approach for each practice’s EHR system and workflow, providers are not required to pay for and develop custom interfaces. However, some EHRs charge the practice a fee to integrate or share patient data with the RISE team; contact your EHR primary contact(s) to learn more.

Support from a Professional Team

The RISE registry team is here to give users a positive experience as they watch their care improve. With seven full-time staff members, your questions and comments are heard and answered quickly. RISE users also receive regular communication from staff on updates with MIPS, upcoming deadlines, and innovative project opportunities.


The RISE Hub is a user benefit of the RISE registry. The Hub contains the information you need to be a successful RISE user.
