TN-POPnet Registries

TN-POPnet component Diabetes, Heart Health, and Cancer Prevention and Control Registries give partners increased ability to track outcomes and improve care. TN-POPnet registries are used to generate Practice Improvement Reports and support practice-based quality improvement research across Tennessee.

 

Diabetes Registry

The Diabetes Registry was launched in 2015 with the support of The Diabetes Wellness and Prevention Coalition (DWPC). The Registry tracks processes and outcomes of care to improve care for people living with diabetes or at risk for diabetes in Tennessee and the Mid-South. The Diabetes Registry fully qualifies as a specialized registry for the purposes of achieving meaningful use of electronic health records. Participating primary and specialty care practices serving people with diabetes receive quarterly practice improvement reports focused on comprehensive diabetes care measures to assist them in tracking and improving quality and outcomes of care. The Diabetes Registry also served as the database foundation of the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) funded Management of Diabetes in Everyday Life (MODEL) study.

Heart Health Registry

The Heart Health Registry tracks processes and outcomes of care to improve care for people living with or at risk for cardiovascular disease across Tennessee. The Registry fully qualifies as a specialized registry for the purposes of achieving meaningful use of electronic health records. Participating primary care practices serving people with or at risk for cardiovascular disease receive quarterly practice improvement reports focused on blood pressure control, delivery of tobacco cessation counseling, and other key measures of recommended heart health care. The Heart Health Registry is designed to assist them in tracking and improving quality and outcomes of care for vulnerable populations at highest risk for stroke, heart attack, and heart failure. The Heart Health Registry serves as the database foundation of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) funded Tennessee Heart Health Network initiative.

Cancer Prevention Registry
The Cancer Prevention Registry tracks processes and outcomes of care to improve care for people living with or at risk for cancer across Tennessee. The Registry fully qualifies as a specialized registry for the purposes of achieving meaningful use of electronic health records. In the near future, participating primary and specialty care practices serving people with or at risk for cancer will receive quarterly practice improvement reports focused on key measures of recommended cancer prevention and treatment services. The Cancer Prevention Registry is designed to assist practices in tracking and improving quality and outcomes of care for vulnerable populations at highest risk for cancer. The Cancer Prevention Registry is being developed in collaboration with the UTHSC Cancer Center with the support and oversight of its Cancer Prevention and Control Program.
