The Monthly Data Form by Physician form allows practices to track metrics for a specific physician over time. The available measures are limited to those metrics over which a physician has direct control. If your facility participates in GRID at the Gold Level, then all fields on the form are enabled. If your facility participates at the Green Level, then only fields shown in green on the paper and online forms are enabled.


A printable version of the Monthly Data Form by Physician form is available for your workflow processes and should not be submitted to the ACR.


There are several dependencies and requirements for the Monthly Data Form by Physician:

  • A Facility form must exist for the same year as the Monthly Data Form by Physician.

  • The physician must be designated as a GRID participant in the Physician directory. 

  • You may not restore a cancelled monthly form until an annual Facility form has been submitted for the same year. If the Facility form's status is Cancelled or In Progress, the Restore link will not appear for the cancelled Monthly Data Form by Physician.

  • You may not cancel a Facility form until all monthly forms have been cancelled for the same year.

  • You cannot enter more than one monthly form for a given facility, year, month and physician.


When completing the form be sure to follow the Manual Data Entry guidelines for working with online forms. More detailed information on the data to be entered is available in the GRID Data Dictionary. Complete each of the sections, as follows:
