POP HEALTH FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
Chicago, IL - October 2 - 3, 2017
In September 2012 after two years of development, Nemours hospital implemented a cerebral palsy patient registry that now includes more than 10,000 patient events. The organization built the registry to interface with its EHR to better treat a medically complex patient population with multiple procedures that require observation over time.
The registry’s primary purpose is not for research but to align clinical operations and care coordination by helping to eliminate paper, redundant data entry, and to streamline the care process for both patient and caregiver.
In this session, Nemours will explain how the registry works and share best practices and lessons learned for attendees considering a similar project.
