Neurology. 2016 Nov 22;87(21):2254-2258. doi: 10.1212/WNL.0000000000003264. Epub 2016 Sep 30.


Clinical quality data registries are increasingly popular tools used by providers to improve the quality of clinical care and satisfy growing numbers of regulatory and reporting requirements. Specialty societies use registries to provide value to their members and guide improvements in care at the population level. In this article, we outline the rationale, structure, function, and challenges related to the American Academy of Neurology's development of its own clinical quality data registry: the Axon Registry.
