How Can PsychPRO Help Your Practice?

Patient Engagement

Patient engagement is enhanced with patient reported outcome measures (PROMS) as an integral part of clinical care.

Value-Based Payment

By using a QCDR like PsychPRO, clinicians can easily transmit data to CMS and potentially obtain bonuses and avoid reimbursement penalties, which can result from nonreporting or under-reporting

Quality Measure Development

PsychPRO is helping to develop and implement quality reporting on new MIPS measures that better reflect clinical practice in the field.


PsychPRO gives psychiatrists a simple method of submitting Performance-in-Practice data and readily obtain ABPN Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part IV credit. Other disciplines may be eligible for CE credits.

Documentation & Reports

PsychPRO's data collection ensures minimal impact on workflow and documentation patterns so clinicians can focus on care and not data collection.

Clinical Effectiveness

PsychPRO is a tool for measuring, tracking and benchmarking care, at the provider, practice and system levels. Clinical effectiveness is monitored and addressed, including the impact of interventions and treatment.

What Participants Are Saying

I had actually given up on succeeding at MIPS because the undertaking seemed too onerous. PsychPRO helped our group successfully submit MIPS data and we are in bonus territory. The difference between a penalty and bonus is worth thousands of dollars to us." Dr. Owings (Arkansas)
We would not have been able to pull the data out of our electronic medical record and submit for MIPS without PsychPRO. Thanks for going the extra mile to make our qualification for MIPS possible - for the first time ever." Dr. Geiger (Illinois)
The registry has helped us to stay on track with MIPS, considering that we are a very busy FQHC, and it has been an invaluable resource for reporting our outcomes." Dr. Camacho (California)
Thank you for creating PsychPRO registry. What an amazing tool to help me understand and navigate quality measure reporting. I was so impressed by the ability to see aggregate and individual patient results." Dr. Brody (New York)
