Atlas, Carta Healthcare’s AI-Assisted Data Abstraction Solution, Provides Seamless End-to-End Submissions to ACC’s AFib Ablation Clinical Data Registry

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
Carta Health, a provider of solutions for common healthcare data challenges through a combination of people, process and artificial intelligence (AI)-based technologies, today announced that it is now a software provider certified National Cardiovascular Data Registry (NCDR®) for the American College of Cardiology (ACC) AFib Ablation Registry. Atlas, Carta Healthcare’s AI-assisted data abstraction solution, combines the expertise of Carta Healthcare’s abstractors and the power of AI to quickly and accurately extract data from electronic health records (EHRs) to fill in the fields of the clinical register.

“The importance of clinical data registries such as the AFib Ablation Registry in advancing research and ensuring quality care cannot be understated,” said Matt Hollingsworth, CEO and co-founder of Carta Healthcare. “As the volume of patient data increases in size and complexity, manual submission to registries consumes valuable resources. Atlas helps organizations find these resources by reaching into the depths of their data that are typically not accessible by humans in a timely manner, automating the entry of certain fields, and providing recommendations for other more complex fields.

The NCDR is a suite of clinical data registries that help hospitals, centers and health systems measure, compare and improve cardiovascular care. These registries collect and compile patient data from a comprehensive network of cardiovascular care providers nationwide to:

  • understand diseases and conditions,

  • new research and quality initiatives,

  • disseminate best practices, and

  • provide information on patient outcomes.

the Atrial Fibrillation Ablation Registry specifically measures the prevalence, demographics, management and outcomes of patients undergoing catheter ablation procedures for atrial fibrillation (AFib).

With NCDR certification, Carta Healthcare can use Atlas to provide organizations with seamless end-to-end submission directly to the AFib Ablation Registry. Automatic updates of NCDR data requirements against Atlas definitions ensure accurate, compliant and efficient data submissions. By combining innovative artificial intelligence technology and the expertise of Carta Healthcare’s abstractors, Atlas quickly and efficiently extracts and unifies structured and unstructured data to provide more accurate clinical registry completion, increased data availability, and the ability to to generate greater value from this data. Atlas compiles and analyzes reliable data from multiple data sources in a fraction of the time, enabling organizations to:

  • reduce the time, cost and resources required for high-quality data registry submissions;

  • divert the attention of their clinicians and nurses from tedious manual chart review and form filling to what they do best: quality patient care; and

  • immediately integrate their data into existing data warehouses or business intelligence applications to support evidence-based decisions about improving patient care and operational efficiency.

“ACC is committed to improving patient care through medical innovation. Our collaboration with Carta Healthcare allows us to streamline registry data collection and reduce clinicians’ efforts in data abstraction,” said Ami Bhatt, MD, FACC, Chief Innovation Officer of ACC. “By using innovative technologies to both improve cardiovascular disease data collection and allow clinicians more time for patient care, ACC and Carta Healthcare are ensuring that ACC’s mission to transform cardiovascular care and improved heart health becomes a reality.
