FIDES Designated by the AQI as a QCDR-Ready Vendor
May 5, 2015
FIDES has officially been designated by the Anesthesia Quality Institute as a QCDR-Ready Vendor. This designation recognizes FIDES for its ability to capture QCDR measures within its database and to report those measures to the AQI’s Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR). This is an important feature for FIDES and its clients and is a natural extension of FIDES’ existing quality improvement capabilities. QCDR reporting provides practices with an alternative to traditional claims-based PQRS reporting and gives them more flexibility in the measures they can use to avoid the PQRS payment penalties imposed by CMS. We’re excited to be able to offer QCDR data collection and reporting as a service to our clients and know it will be an important and effective tool for FIDES’ clients as they work to avoid penalties, improve quality and patient safety.

Fides has officially been designated a Patient Safety Organization (PSO). This is a significant step in assuring that FIDES can continue to improve patient safety and quality of care by designating FIDES a secure environment leveraging the privilege and confidentiality protections of a PSO for its members. Also, a global provider of health care and higher education research, the Advisory Board Company, recently met with executives at Spectrum Medical Group to discuss the process used in taking FIDES from conception through execution and have decided to profile FIDES in an upcoming "National Summit Series" as a best practice for identifying and implementing ideas for new means of growth for the company.
"My research team and I were very impressed with the process you used to identify new means of growth and how you developed FIDES into a standalone product to leverage with other physicians groups, and would like to profile both these aspects as best practice examples at our upcoming National Summit Series." - Aliza Bach, The Advisory Board Company
