General Radiology Improvement Database

The General Radiology Improvement Database (GRID) helps facilities establish benchmarks for quality improvement by collecting general practice radiology measures and comparing them to similar facilities. Facilities and physicians receive semiannual comparison reports on turnaround times, patient wait times, incident rates and other process and outcome measures to help identify opportunities for improvement and provide resources for contract negotiations.

The GRID offers participants additional QCDR measures 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).

How to Participate

  • Register each facility that will participate in the registry
  • Complete and return a signed participation agreement to NRDR
  • Fees are due only after you have started submitting your GRID data
