Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) Outcomes Registry – Baseline Data
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death and morbidity in Australia. CVD was the primary diagnosis in 11% of hospitalisations in Australia in 2015-16, with the largest proportion of those being for Coronary Heart Disease (CHD).
The free-text, paper-based and siloed nature of health data in Australia prevents the large-scale collection of high-quality baseline patient and clinical outcomes data for cardiovascular research and large-scale quality assurance and monitoring programs. This project will leverage the established and proven data collection processes at Eastern Heart Clinic to build a robust, multicentre, prospective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) outcomes registry.
Who is this project for?
- Peak bodies such as Sydney Partnership for Health, Education, Research & Enterprise (SPHERE) Cardiac and Vascular Health Clinical Academic Group (CAG)
- State & Federal Health Departments
What does this project enable?
This project will enable the relevant clinical stakeholders to reach consensus on the clinical data collection elements and protocols necessary to establish a national PCI outcomes clinical registry that ultimately will facilitate evaluations of the quality of care delivered to coronary heart disease patients across Australia.
