Sample Custom Registry Project

American Heart Association (AHA)

NRCPR: DI was selected to develop both the user and central-site software for the AHA’s National Registry of CardioPulmonary Resuscitation (NRCPR). A number of additional central-site modules were also included for managing users, automating report preparation via the secure NRCPR Internet web site, and publishing electronic distribution of comparative and ad hoc reports. Tri-Analytics, Inc., a division of DI, (TAI) provides the data management services for NRCPR.

Pennsylvania Trauma Systems Foundation (PTSF)

PTSF: For more than a decade, DI has provided the statewide trauma registry products for both the PTSF’s central statewide database and for individual trauma centers throughout the state. The Pennsylvania Collector Trauma Registry solution includes central-site and user software, as well as a Site Survey system to assist PTSF in its accreditation process. To meet the increasing needs of the PTSF, DI has recently expanded its products and services to including an outcomes measurement/ performance improvement system to interface with Collector. DI also provides a number of training, development and support services for PTSF.

The Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health

NSCOT: DI developed the data collection and reporting software for the National Study for Cost and Outcomes in Trauma (NSCOT), a nationwide research study which focuses on evaluating the cost and effectiveness of trauma care of both trauma and non-trauma centers nationwide. DI also provides software maintenance and technical support services to the study’s regional coordinators and central data center. For the study, a sampling group of 10,000 patients was called upon to participate in a two-part survey to gather information regarding the hospital care and treatment injured patients, as well as areas of their lives that may have changed after being injured. NSCOT was sponsored by a grant through the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the study was conducted through the collaborative efforts of the Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health, Center for Injury Research and Policy, and the University of Washington School of Medicine.
