Reg-ent℠ and EHRs
Whether you are preparing to participate in Reg-ent or if you are already participating, it is important for you to understand how Reg-ent collects patient and encounter data from electronic health records (EHRs) and that the ability to collect data and the method of collection are dependent on the EHR vendor solution and how the data is hosted (either locally or in the cloud). Without going into all the details here, Reg-ent’s technical vendor partner, FIGmd, will either “pull” your EHR data into Reg-ent through the Registry Practice Connector (RPC) software application or your EHR vendor will “push” your data files to Reg-ent.

Please keep in mind that successful integration is not always guaranteed. While Reg-ent and FIGmd have successfully integrated with most EHRs, allowing Reg-ent participants to contribute their data to the registry electronically, there are EHR vendor solutions that have been problematic. Please review this comprehensive list of EHRs to see if your EHR is currently providing data to Reg-ent - if it isn’t, please note that FIGmd is actively working with many of these vendors to develop data-extraction solutions for registry participants. Updates with EHR vendors will be posted to this webpage and shared via other Reg-ent and AAO-HNSF communications – so stay tuned!
