About the Sign Up Process

I’ve signed up. What’s next?
Your practice administrator (which you designated when you signed up) will receive an email from our customer support team with your user ID and password, along with training materials to help you get started using the system. Please allow 1-2 business days for your account to be set up.

I’m not ready to sign up yet. Is there someone I could talk to about the product?
Yes, contact and a sales representative will reach out to you.

Do you accept payment forms other than Credit Card?
To streamline our signups, we accept Credit and Debit cards as forms of payment. Contact us if you wish to discuss using another payment method.

I’m signing up mid-year. How will the renewal work?
All subscriptions will renew on January 1 of the following year. For example – If you sign up on June 1, 2018, you will have access to the QCDR functionality within a few business days of your signup and will be included in the CMS MIPS submission for 2018 (which is done in March 2019). On January 1, 2019, your account will auto-renew and you will be subscribed for the 2019 reporting year.

About the NIPM-QCDR

What is the ASIPP NIPM-QCDR?

The ASIPP Quality Registry and National Interventional Pain Management – Qualified Clinical Data Registry (NIPM-QCDR) is specifically tailored for interventional pain physicians. It enables providers and their patients to confidentially and securely report real-world outcomes following procedures performed in an office, surgery center, or hospital. It is the only solution specifically designed for interventional pain physicians to meet requirements of the CMS Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).

What are the benefits of participating in the registry if I am not participating in MIPS?

The registry is available to all interventional pain physicians – not just those participating in clinical trials or MIPS. The data from these real-world outcomes will expand knowledge and understanding of interventional pain management and set the stage for healthier discussions regarding healthcare policy and reimbursement. You can track your outcomes over time, across various practice settings, and get confidential feedback from patients between office visits.

  • View real-world results in real-time with patient-reported outcomes and performance tracking
  • Benchmark your performance against de-identified results from regional and national peers

Do I have to participate in MIPS?

To determine your eligibility for MIPS, check your MIPS participation status on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Quality Payment Program (QPP) website at

What reports and features does the registry provide?

The NIPM-QCDR is powered on the ArborMetrix platform. ArborMetrix’s suite of features and reports make it easy for you to see how you are performing, identify and implement best practices, improve care, and optimize CMS quality reporting. The platform especially delivers:

  • Interactive, real-time analytics and reports on an intuitive, web-based, HIPAA-compliant interface
  • Clinical relevance with specialty-specific measures defined for interventional pain management
  • Clinical depth through the ability to drill down to see patient-level details

How will the NIPM-QCDR help me with CMS requirements for MACRA and MIPS?

By participating in the NIPM-QCDR, you can fulfill the requirements of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), including mandates for Quality, Improvement Activities, and Advancing Care Information. To learn more about CMS requirements for the Quality Payment Program (QPP) and Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), view the CMS MIPS overview at

What is the cost to participate in the registry?
Providers who participate in the NIPM-QCDR pay an annual fee. The cost is:

  • $500 for ASIPP member physicians
  • $400 for ASIPP member non-physicians (nurse practitioners, physician assistants, etc.)
  • $750 for non-ASIPP member physicians
  • $600 for non-ASIPP member non-physicians (nurse practitioners, physician assistants, etc.)

Is the data my practice provides secure and/or anonymous?
Yes, the NIPM-QCDR  is compliant with the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act.

How do I provide data to the registry?
Physicians and practices provide data through the registry in a number of methods, which include file upload, manual data entry, and EHR integration.
