The new authorization for Q-Centrix will provide hospitals an additional option for submitting healthcare quality data to American Heart Association registries.
CHICAGO, December 27, 2017 – Q-Centrix announces today it has added a second American Heart Association clinical registry – Get With The Guidelines® – Coronary Artery Disease – to its solution for reporting healthcare quality data to registries on behalf of hospitals. GWTG is one of the largest registry groups in healthcare.
With this new authorization, Q-Centrix’s Universal Registry Solution becomes an option for managing the entire registry-encounter lifecycle – from data capture to submission – for hospitals participating in GWTG-CAD. Many of these hospitals must report quality data to additional cardiovascular care-focused registries, including other registries in the GWTG group.
“Streamlining the process of data submission to multiple registries allows doctors and nurses to focus on patient care instead of being tied up with data management,” said Q-Centrix Chief Product Officer, Brian Foy. “It also results in improved efficiencies that can lead to greater quality reporting cost savings at a time when hospitals are operating on increasingly narrow margins.”
The Q-Centrix Universal Registry Solution is an application within the company’s broader market-leading technology platform called Q-Apps. It pairs patent-pending technology with the industry’s largest and broadest team of nurse-educated Quality Information SpecialistsSM – more than 800 quality experts acting as virtual extensions of quality departments within more than 450 hospitals.
Having received new registry submission certifications at a rate of nearly one per month for the past year, Q-Centrix’s expansion of registry solutions is outpacing other healthcare quality vendors. Q-Centrix also is an authorized vendor for GWTG-Stroke and registries in the American College of Cardiology’s National Cardiovascular Data Registry® and the Society for Thoracic Surgeons’ National Database.
Q‑Centrix aims to measurably improve the quality and safety of patient care in the U.S. through the use of its market-leading technology platform, Q-Apps, coupled with the industry’s largest and broadest team of nurse-educated, quality information specialists. Processing in excess of 1 million quality data transactions annually, Q‑Centrix is a comprehensive quality partner to hundreds of hospitals, providing quality data management solutions, including quality data capture, surveillance, measure calculations, analysis, reporting, and improvement solutions.
