Top Trends in Patient Registries

Top Trends in Patient Registries This Week's Challenge: In the new landscape of accountable and value-based healthcare, patient registries are a straightforward tool for creating realistic views of clinical practices, patient outcomes, provider performance, safety and comparative effectiveness and for supporting evidence-based medicine development and decision-making. We wanted to see what types of patient registries healthcare organizations are implementing. Click here to view a printable version of the chart.

What We Learned: HIN's e-survey on registry use for quality improvement, administered in August 2011, captured how 105 healthcare organizations are using patient registries currently and in the future, and the impact registries have on healthcare quality, efficiency and cost. According to survey respondents, the main types of patient registries being used are:

  • Disease/condition-based: 63 percent

  • Health services-based: 17 percent

  • Meaningful use: 9 percent

  • Product-based: 3 percent

  • Medication regimen: 3 percent

  • Appointment tracker: 3 percent

  • Other: 3 percent
