ASA and ASRA Soliciting Pain Medicine Concepts for Measure Development

The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) and American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine (ASRA) invite members from both organizations to submit concepts for consideration in the development of quality measures related to acute and chronic pain.

The call for concepts in open from Monday, July 17 - Friday, August 7, 2017.

Quality measure reporting is a key component in local quality improvement and success in federal payment programs. Together, ASA and ASRA are devoted to providing more opportunities for physician anesthesiologists and pain medicine physicians to report measures that are applicable and meaningful to their practice. They invite members to submit measure concepts related to regional anesthesia and pain medicine, with particular interest in high-priority process or outcome measures related to:

  • Acute pain procedures using regional anesthesia
  • Postoperative pain management
  • Chronic pain management
