• The IRIS® Registry (Intelligent Research in Sight) is the nation's first electronic health record-based comprehensive eye disease and condition registry. It is a centralized data repository and reporting tool that can analyze patient data to produce easy-to-interpret national and inter-practice benchmark reports and provide scientific information to improve public health. The reports can validate the quality of care ophthalmologists provide and pinpoint opportunities for improvement.

    Eligible physicians who sign up and meet the reporting requirements can use the IRIS Registry to report clinical quality data to the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System. The IRIS Registry will automatically extract and submit data for MIPS quality measures to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services on behalf of practices integrated with their EHR. Additionally, CMS has confirmed that the IRIS Registry is considered a Clinical Data Registry and a Public Health Registry for the purpose of providing Promoting Interoperability performance points, because of its public health and population health data analyses to improve care.
