AQI offers all participating parties access to our Participant User File (PUF).
The PUF file is a collection of all cases in the National Anesthesia Clinical Outcomes Registry (NACOR). Data within this extract spans 13+ million cases, 3+ years, and 100+ heterogeneous sources. The file contains patient demographic, billing, procedural, and provider information, all in a single common format.
*** THIS DATA IS COMPLETELY DE-IDENTIFIED ***
*** Clinical Outcomes are not included in the PUF file at this time ***
*** The file cannot be viewed in its entirety in excel (it is much too large). ***
*** You must use a statistical package to view the file. ***
THERE IS NO MEANS TO IDENTIFY A SPECIFIC PRACTICE IN THIS FILE.
Participants looking for practice specific benchmarks should look toward current reports available and make additional requests where needed.
Please notify AQI of any publications made using PUF data
Access to the PUF is granted to individual participants by application only.
