October 10, 2013 — Mortara Instrument Inc. announced an integrated connectivity solution that provides data from the Quinton Q-Tel Rehabilitation Management Systems (RMS) to the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation’s (AACVPR’s) Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation Registry. The web-based registry is the first of its kind in the United States and will provide cardiac rehabilitation professionals with a means to track, document and communicate patient outcomes and program performance.
The Quinton Q-Tel rehabilitation management system is a diagnostic quality system that is used in a medically supervised program. The configurable Q-Tel RMS, along with its advanced telemetry transmitters, customizable reports and connectivity options to electronic medical records (EMRs), enhance workflow in the rehabilitation department and allow clinicians more time to interact with their patients.
The registry will allow cardiac rehabilitation professionals to track clinical outcomes and program performance in accord with evidence-based guidelines. It will also demonstrate the impact of cardiac rehabilitation on morbidity, mortality, physical function and quality of life for heart patients in the United States.
"The registry will integrate with other AACVPR strategic initiatives, including program certification and performance measures, to increase program quality and provide data that is currently unavailable regarding the outcomes of cardiac rehabilitation," said Steven Lichtman, former president, AACVPR.
