The IRISTM Registry: Ophthalmology’s Moon Shot?
In 2014 the American Academy of Ophthalmology will launch the IRISTM Registry. In many respects, this will be the most significant project the Academy has ever undertaken. If successful, it will usher in a new era wherein ophthalmologists will have the data to review their own processes and outcomes of care in their continual quest for excellence. The IRIS registry will generate powerful data in defining the impact and value of the care ophthalmologists provide. It may assist ophthalmologists in the American Board of Ophthalmology’s Maintenance of Certification process. And it will ignite a new vehicle for clinical research. But there is a lot to be done, and there remain challenges. Listen as some of the registry experts discuss the IRIS initiative, the important issues before all of us and take questions from the audience.
