Call for Concepts: Quality Measures for Acute and Chronic Pain

Jul 18, 2017

ASRA has joined the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) to 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 is 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. ASRA and ASA are devoted to providing more opportunities for physician anesthesiologists and pain medicine physicians to report measures that are applicable and meaningful to their practice. We 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

Learn more and submit measure concepts on the ASA website here. For questions, please contact the Department of Quality and Regulatory Affairs (QRA) at
