Carta Healthcare Announces Status as a Certified NCDR Software Vendor for the American College of Cardiology’s (ACC) CathPCI Registry

San Francisco, CA – [July 1, 2021] — Carta Healthcare, a provider of artificial intelligence (AI)-powered clinical data abstraction technology and services, today announced that it is now a certified NCDR® software vendor for the CathPCI Registry®. Atlas, Carta’s data abstraction solution, uses AI to abstract data from electronic medical records (EMRs), populating clinical registries with greater efficiency and accuracy than manual abstraction.

“It’s an absolute honor to be certified by the American College of Cardiology (ACC), as participation in clinical registries like the CathPCI Registry has never been more important or meaningful in improving patient outcomes,” said Matt Hollingsworth, CEO and co-founder of Carta Healthcare. “With Atlas, organizations can leverage the power of AI to streamline registry population and submission, freeing up staff time and resources to focus on what’s most important — caring for patients.”

The CathPCI Registry is part of the NCDR, a suite of cardiovascular data registries helping hospitals and private practices measure and improve the quality of care they provide. These registries collect and compile information from vast amounts of patient data to understand diseases and conditions, further research and quality initiatives, and provide insights about patient outcomes. Specifically, the CathPCI Registry assesses the characteristics, treatments, and outcomes of cardiac disease patients who receive diagnostic catheterization and/or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures. 

Atlas’ AI-assisted technology automates the collection and aggregation of patient data — both structured and unstructured — from multiple secondary sources, driving clinical insights through faster, reliable data collection. As an NCDR certified software vendor, Atlas provides seamless end-to-end submission to the CathPCI Registry, including automatic updates of the NCDR data requirements to ensure compliant data submissions. 

With Atlas, organizations can also:

  • Access the deep reaches of their data that are often missed due to resource limitations
  • Benefit from standardization of all their data into a FHIR-based format for use across multiple systems and reporting tools
  • Reduce the time, cost, and resources required for high-quality data registry submissions
  • Shift the focus of their clinicians and nurses away from tedious, manual chart review and form completion to what they do best — quality patient care
  • Immediately integrate their data into existing data warehouses or business intelligence applications to support evidence-based decisions about improving patient care and operational efficiencies
 

“A key focus for the ACC Innovation Program is artificial intelligence-driven care. We are excited about our collaboration with Carta, to assist hospitals and improve the efficiency of data abstraction,” said ACC Chief Innovation Officer John Rumsfeld, MD, PhD, FACC. “Our collaboration can help hospitals advance patient care and successfully respond to a changing world, while helping the ACC bring its vision of innovation and knowledge that optimizes cardiovascular care and outcomes into reality.”
