RISE for Clinicians & Researchers

A HIPAA-compliant QCDR, RISE attracts widespread participation among rheumatology clinicians and providers. With over 1,000 rheumatology clinicians and 3.1 million patients, RISE is instrumental in advancing the specialty through improving care and expanding research.

The RISE registry is a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) developed by the ACR to help clinicians and researchers:

  • Optimize patient outcomes
  • Navigate the Quality Payment Program (QPP) Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and MIPS Value Pathway (MVP) reporting requirements
  • Make discoveries that advance rheumatology
  • Demonstrate the value of rheumatology to key influencers

Improve Care with RISE

RISE helps rheumatology clinicians and health care providers evaluate the quality of care delivered to patients and identify opportunities for improvement. With 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.
