The CTC registry provides evidence-based health outcomes and process data for decision-making purposes. The registry allows facilities to compare results to regional and national benchmarks for quality improvement.
Process measures include optimal bowel cleansing and distention, rate of adequacy of diagnostic CTC examination and rate of adequacy of screening CTC examination. Outcome measures include rate of colonic perforation, true positive rate and extracolonic findings.
Participating facilities and physicians receive semiannual reports based on aggregated benchmarks to facilitate patient safety and quality improvement efforts.
The CTC registry offers participants additional ways to fulfill reporting requirements for the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).
Participation also allows credit for Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part IV requirements of the American Board of Radiology (ABR).
