The LCSR Measures – Exam-Level report is an interactive tool for viewing a facility’s exam data that contribute to a selected measure. The report information can help you dive into the details of the exams that comprise a facility's performance for a specific measure.
Navigating the Report
Get started by signing in to the National Radiology Data Registry (NRDR) portal and selecting the LCSR Measures - Exam Lever Report in the left menu.
The report is divided into four tabs across the top of the screen.
1. About this Report
This tab provides a general overview of the information displayed across all report tabs. In each tab, hover your pointer over the information icon (blue circle) in the upper left corner to learn more about navigating the tab's features.
2. Rankings and Exam
This report allows you to select a measure to view all of the exams that contribute to the measure’s rate calculation. You can filter reports by Year, Facility (within a Corporate Account), Measure, and the specific Report Section.
The report displays a facility’s rankings for each measure compared to the entire LCSR. Color-coded rankings provide visual feedback with values determined by a facility’s performance compared to national performance quartiles – e.g. in the highest 25% of all sites, lowest 25% of all sites, etc.
