IMPACT Registry Feedback Form Now Live

December 27, 2017
Dear IMPACT EP Module User,
Every 3 years the NCDR makes a major update to the IMPACT registry. This is our chance to fix any problems we’ve discovered in the EP module since it went live in 2016.  Please take this opportunity to communicate to the PACES QA/QI Committee any and all thoughts, concerns, problems, improvements, additions related to the current IMPACT EP Module so PACES can better advise the creation of a new and improved IMPACT version 3.0 EP Module.
To make reporting your feedback simple and quick, we have 2 easy ways to give us here at the PACES QA/QI committee your feedback:
  • Submit feedback mechanism through the PACES website. Simply go to the PACES website ( and click the RED button labelled “Impact Registry Feedback”.  Then enter the information as requested on the form and click send. The information will be sent to the PACES QA/QI committee for review.
  • Participate in any of 4 “Town Hall” conference calls. We will be using the Bluejeans conference call platform (it’s like Skype). Click Bluejeans link to join. Email or call me if you are having problems joining the call. Please join us for any one of these calls and help us make the next version better!
We will review and consolidate all feedback into a single document for submission to the NCDR.  We know there are problems, let’s take advantage of this once every 3 year opportunity to make it better!
