Wolters Kluwer Releases Module to Streamline NCDR CathPCI Registry Reporting

September 14, 2011— Wolters Kluwer Health announced the release of a module to support participation in the American College of Cardiology (ACC) National Cardiovascular Data Registry (NCDR) CathPCI Registry. Part of the ProVation MD software for cardiology procedure documentation and coding, the ACC-certified module automates collection of required data and simplifies the submission process.

The CathPCI Registry is a national surveillance system that assesses characteristics, treatments, and outcomes of cardiac disease patients who receive diagnostic catheterization and/or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures. It is one of six registries maintained by the NCDR. The goal is to optimize outcomes and management of coronary heart disease patients through implementation of evidence-based guidelines; it also facilitates efforts to improve the quality and safety of care and investigate novel quality improvement methods.

Participating hospitals and cath labs are provided with a risk-adjusted assessment to measure their performance against similar comparison groups and national benchmarks.

The ProVation Registry Reporter module takes advantage of procedure data documented with ProVation MD, as well as information gathered through interfaces to other systems. The software highlights data required by the NCDR, including patient demographic and admission data, hemodynamic system data, and clinical documentation data including diagnostic and PCI information; it then feeds it automatically into the Registry Reporter for quarterly submission to the CathPCI Registry. 

By making NCDR CathPCI Registry data requirements an integral part of the physician’s documentation workflow and by leveraging interfaces to ProVation MD, the Registry Reporter increases the efficiency with which reporting is accomplished. It eliminates redundant data entry, which improves data quality and accuracy. Finally, the module allows for easy review, augmentation and modification of collected information.
