NQRN Advisory Committee  

NQRN is a professional community of registry practice – and as a PCPI member you can participate in NQRN by indicating your interest in registries on your PCPI member application, in your online profile or by contacting a member of PCPI staff.

Oversight of the NQRN program is provided by the NQRN Advisory Committee, led by Dr. David Shahian, MD, Society of Thoracic Surgeons, and founding chair Dr. Kathleen Hewitt, DNP, American College of Cardiology.

The NQRN Advisory Committee counsels NQRN and the PCPI Board of Directors on matters related to registries and data. The Advisory Committee lends expertise related to the creation and maintenance of registries and focuses heavily on advocating on the behalf of registries. In addition to the Advisory Committee, NQRN has several work groups under which activities are carried out. Activities the NQRN Advisory Committee are involved in include:

  • Providing expertise in the development and use of clinical registries
  • Overseeing the development of resources such as guides and tools to assist organizations operating, planning or using information from registries
  • Supporting registries and their participation in federal programs including the CMS Quality Payment Program by becoming a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) and successfully maintaining that status in future program years
  • Creating voluntary consensus standards or guidance around common data elements for registries and other clinical information systems
  • Working with federal government agencies to promote the adoption of voluntary consensus standards or guidance in the registry and broader clinical information system communities
  • Developing and overseeing an annual work plan
  • Planning for and hosting the registry section at PCPI meetings
  • Facilitate a learning network in registries or related areas

NQRN Advisory Committee members possess a wide skill set and interests including: data science, measurement, informatics, advocacy, and research. These skills are vital in enhancing the PCPI’s understanding of the current registry landscape, the impact on the future direction of registries and determining diverse uses for registry data in research and industry.
