We are excited to introduce the newest registry to MCORRP geared towards better understanding COVID-19. To facilitate better understanding of this pandemic, the American Heart Association (AHA) has developed a new registry for hospitals and health systems caring for COVID-19 patients. The University of Michigan, through MCORRP, is one of the contributing sites to this national registry.
The AHA registry was designed to assess the clinical treatment patterns, variations and cardiovascular outcomes in hospitalized COVID-19 patients across the nation. The registry will focus on real-time data from acute care hospitals to better help clinicians and researchers understand and provide feedback to healthcare organizations on how to best treat COVID-19 patients. The AHA’s COVID-19 Registry powered by Get With The Guidelines builds on 20 years of successful hospital quality improvement efforts.
MCORRP continues to contribute to the national registry but also collects data on patients one year after discharge. Since many people diagnosed with COVID-19 experience symptoms long after they were first diagnosed, a follow-up questionnaire is sent to patients via e-mail. For those patients without a current e-mail address, a f/u telephone call will be conducted. Two abstracts were submitted to national meetings this past year, one reporting in-hospital outcomes based on BMI and the second reporting outcomes on the effects of proning.
