AHRQ developing a 'registry of patient registries'

The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services' Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality wants to create a "Registry of Patient Registries," similar to its clinical trials databank launched in 2000, according to a notice seeking comment published today in the Federal Register. According to the notice, AHRQ believes that the database could help reduce redundancy, increasetransparency, and improve collaboration in the helathcare industry. In addition, the organization said the database could "serve as a recruitment tool for researchers and patients interested in participating in patient registries." Announcement
