MPOG and SAMBA
MPOG is committed to providing maximal value for your data extraction and interface efforts. To that end, MPOG has developed an interface from the local database hosted at each institution to the SAMBA Clinical Outcomes Registry (SCOR). Because the registry was designed for prospective data collection, most AIMS / EHR implementations require modification of the data elements to match the robust, specific SCOR data definitions.
Once those AIMS / EHR data collection changes are completed by you, your existing MPOG interface allows you to contribute to SCOR without any additional technical effort. To ensure that you control your data, you actually send your data from your local database to SCOR and the centralized MPOG dataset is not involved. A distinct Data Use Agreement between your organization and SCOR is required. Standard SCOR fees per the SCOR fee schedule will apply.
