Collaboration with American College of Cardiology could result in new health-outcomes results
A new analytics platform combines two existing ones: the ACC National Cardiovascular Data Registry, mainly clinical information from anonymized patient records, and the Integrated Dataverse of Horsham, PA-based Symphony Health Solutions (SHS), a longitudinal database that includes prescription data and medical and hospital claims. Together, the database covers approximately five million patients over as long as six years, in a therapy area which remains the largest cause of death in the United States.
“This analytic platform is ground-breaking in the level of data it will provide,” said John S. Rumsfeld, M.D., Ph.D., FACC, Chief Science Officer of the American College of Cardiology National Cardiovascular Data Registries, in a statement. "This creates a synergy that can yield critical insights on improving cardiovascular care and patient outcomes.” Adds Dr. Gregory Hess, MD, MBA, and Chief Medical Officer for Symphony Health Solutions noted, “The detailed cardiology data from the ACC registries collected by practicing physicians over many years allows for a greater range of insights and a more accurate understanding of patient diagnoses, treatments and outcomes than previously afforded by claims data alone.”
The organizations expect to market the data to life sciences organizations, healthcare providers and governments.
