Reliable Data Registry Services

CDAS provides reliable data registry services that aid our clients in abstracting clinical data from millions of records that help build an evidence-based rationale for informed treatment choices and lower the treatment costs. Our clinician’s abstract various clinical data for different registries. Our abstraction services include:

GWTG Heart Failure and Stroke Registries

The GWTG® Heart Failure registry incorporates the latest scientific advances. CDAS helps in capturing the developments registry. The registry includes treatment and care guidelines proven to improve patient outcomes. The data from this program is so vital that, there has been a significant drop in the number of 30-day re-admissions, a measure that helps determining reimbursement rates by CMS.

The GWTG® Stroke registry incorporates the latest scientific treatment guidelines to improve stroke patient care and outcomes. Studies have revealed a direct relationship between success rates and the implementation of this program. Data submission and feedback reporting are provided by the American Heart Association’s Patient Management Tool™ (PMT).

CDAS offers high quality abstraction services for these registries

NCDR Registries

NCDR® (National Cardiovascular Data Registry) is a comprehensive outcomes-based quality improvement program that support cardiovascular care. The registries help our clients build evidence-based rationale for co-ordinated treatment choices and lower treatment costs. NCDR comprises six hospital-based registries and one outpatient registry and is managed by the American College of Cardiology (ACC). The NCDR registries that are included in our abstraction services are:

  • ACTION Registry® GWTG™: high-risk STEMI/NSTEMI myocardial infarction patients
  • CARE Registry®: carotid artery stenting and endarterectomy procedures
  • CathPCI Registry®: cardiac catheterization and percutaneous coronary intervention procedures
  • ICD Registry™: tracking implantable cardioverter defibrillator procedures
  • IMPACT Registry™: adult and paediatric congenital heart conditions
  • STS/ACC TVT Registry™: transcatheter valve therapy procedures
  • PVI Registry: Peripheral Vascular procedures

Cancer Registries

Medical facilities across the nation send patients data who have been diagnosed with cancer. These patient’s data are logged with the cancer registry. CDAS cancer registrars capture information from patient medical records and send them to the central cancer registry as standard codes. The data collected include incidence, demographic, and clinical data.

This data is maintained by the CDC’s National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) and the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) Program. This data is used for:

  • Identifying cancer trends over time.
  • Identifying cancer patterns in various populations and high-risk groups.
  • Planning and evaluation of cancer control programs.
  • Allocating health resources and prioritizing
  • Help in further Research of Cancers.
  • Help in defining quality of care for cancer patients.

Sepsis Registries

According to Surviving Sepsis campaign website, Sepsis and septic shock are leading causes of death worldwide. The international Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC) is a joint initiative of the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) and the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM), are committed to reducing mortality and morbidity from sepsis and septic shock worldwide.

Surviving Services Campaign has two registries, 3-hour completion group and 6-hour completion group. Our abstractors capture the clinical data required for these registries according to registry standards and assist in understanding the caregiver’s ability to reduce the mortality rate.

NTDB (National Trauma Data Standard)

The Trauma Quality Improvement Program (TQIP) initiated by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) requires data to track the nation’s highest performance in Trauma Care. CDAS helps participating trauma centre’s to capture the data for National Trauma Data Standard in compliance with the NTDB standard. The NTDB data is used for the following purposes.

  • Developing Nationwide Trauma Benchmarks
  • Evaluating EMS, Hospital and Trauma Systems Patient Outcomes
  • Facilitating Research Efforts
  • Determining National Trends in Trauma Care
  • Addressing Resources for Disaster and Domestic Preparedness
  • Providing Valuable Information on Other Issues or Areas of Need Related to Trauma Care

ACS NSQIP Registry

Many patients suffer from complications that might have been prevented. American College of Surgeons (ACS), states that whenever a hospital participates in the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP®), it has the potential of reducing the number of complications by 250 to 500, which could result in 12 to 36 lives saved. ACS also claims that if every U.S. hospital used NSQIP, more than 100,000 lives would be saved annually, resulting in more than $25 billion in reduced healthcare cost – in just one year.

The benefits the patients get include better outcomes, shorter hospital stays and greater satisfaction. The benefit to surgeons includes better surgical care and more targeted decision- making. For hospitals, higher star ratings obtained through, sustained reduction in postoperative mortality and reduction in complication, reduction in disparities of care, lower costs of car and enhanced community reputation.
