AAO-HNSF Building First Otolaryngology-Specific Data Registry



An otolaryngologist with more than two decades of experience, Dr. James Freije provides comprehensive care to children and adults as an associate with the Mount Nittany Physician Group. Dedicated to staying active within his professional community, Dr. James Freije belongs to several organizations, including the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery.

The American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery Foundation (AAO-HNSF), a part of the world’s largest ENT organization dedicated to advancing the field, recently announced at its Annual Meeting and OTO Expo that it is working with healthcare quality measurement provider FIGmd to develop a new clinical data registry. Called Regent, the registry is the first clinical data registry that is specific to otolaryngology and will serve as the foundation for quality improvement, clinical and product research, and certification and licensure support. The AAO-HNSF hopes that by creating Regent, it will be better able to invest in the organization’s members’ future.

Current plans for Regent focus on creating a registry that finds potential gaps in clinician performance and knowledge by documenting various care outcomes from professionals in the field. The registry will keep track of treatment effectiveness and disease progression in patients. Additionally, it will assist with reporting for private and federal quality reporting programs, prepare alternative payment models for patients, and aid with post-market observation of different drugs and medical devices.
