The use of an electronic disease registry provides a common platform for health information exchange related to the identification, management, and study of patients with a particular condition.
Electronic Disease registries allow healthcare stakeholders to monitor, understand, and research the long-term implications of specific diseases. Electronic disease registries securely capture, store, and manage patient data. The ability to standardize and centralize data on a regional, national or international basis improves knowledge transfer, patient recruitment into clinical trials and ultimately improves patient outcomes. Thus, electronic disease registries enhance care coordination among providers by allowing participating providers to obtain clinical data from across the disease community. Registry data also can be used by healthcare providers to demonstrate the provision of appropriate care to their patients for quality reporting purposes.
Stay Up To Date With Disease Registry Using The Cloud
Clinisys can develop cloud-based electronic disease registries, clinical and genetic registries, and treatment registries that can be accessed via any internet browser regardless of where the user is located. Data is migrated from existing organizational data repositories and standardized to allow universal access. Healthcare providers and associated organizations often already have the necessary administrative and technical infrastructure to allow for data extraction from multiple sources, the transformation of the data into a common format, and the loading of the data into the registry.
Access is permission-based only and can be limited to only the data that is relevant to a specific end-user. Registries are built to the most current and secure industry standards. This includes multi-level authentication, strong encryption support, and advanced cryptographic standards. All communications and interactions are encrypted and secured.
Registry development focuses on technical issues and the establishment of standards related to patient identity management, record localization, and the automation of data loading including real-time data feeding capabilities, thus the timeliness of the data can be affected by the frequency of batch loading. In addition, further consideration should be given to integrating the use of registries into clinicians’ workflows at the point-of-care. Implementation of computerized disease registries by HIE organizations poses an opportunity to better manage chronic diseases in a larger population.
