Miami Children’s Hospital’s (MCH) Heart Program integrated its electronic medical record (EMR) with three North American registry databases for congenital heart disease, making it the first provider-based program in the country to do so.

Miami Children’s Hospital’s (MCH) Heart Program integrated its electronic medical record (EMR) with three North American registry databases for congenital heart disease, making it the first provider-based program in the country to do so.

The hospital says in May it integrated its Cerner EMR with registry databases for surgical patients, catheterization patients and cardiac ICU patients. This link can help researchers better understand the genomics of congenital heart disease, while possibly enabling public reporting of outcomes.

 “The Heart Program has long been a pioneer in utilizing IT technology to enhance patient care, and physician and patient family access to care data. This latest system integration is one more step in our commitment to best practices. Our surgical and interventional outcomes continue to be among the best in the nation and our focus on transparency ensures a sustained operational focus on this goal,” Redmond P. Burke, M.D., director of cardiovascular surgery for The Heart Program at MCH, said in a statement.
