Description: 
ARMUS Outcomes3 clinical registry solution combines an advanced data entry component with real time validation and an ad-hoc analytical engine with visual query builder in one integrated platform.  The system is delivered through our CQI Application Services (ASP) over the Internet and accessible from anywhere at any time.

Outcomes3 supports all the STS data versions and definitions (from 2.35 through 2.61) in ONE database, allowing longitudinal analysis for quality improvement and/or research.

An individualized STS database using Outcomes3 can be set up quickly.  Sites do not need IT support staff or separate computing environments in order to have secured access to the system that includes:
o Complete data collection and analytical database application
o Training and user manual
o Customer and technical support
o Periodic system updates and upgrades
o Accessibility to your database from anywhere, anytime
o Interactive help (finding records, data analysis, reports, tables, data exports, etc.) by shadowing your session

Each database in the CQI network is completely independent; your database will NOT be part of another database or shared with any other users. Furthermore, we can customize users' access to ensure data integrity.

The current version of Outcomes3 is the result of almost ten years of consistent research and development. Ad-hoc, visual query designer, data table and statistical analysis are all part of the standard application. No SQL or statistical knowledge nor any reporting tools are required in order to use Outcomes3. Data can be easily exported to other applications at any time.

The data entry mechanism is based on rules and definitions that are checked in real time. The system proactively eliminates many predictable and not so obvious errors by using the rules created for all fields. These rules are stored in a special data structure and any specific changes (user defined fields and rules) are instantaneously applicable the next time you start the application.

ARMUS is the sole application service provider for the Virginia Cardiac Surgery Quality Initiative (VCSQI) where all the institutions (17 centers) are using our services to combine clinical and financial information into Outcomes3 with a patient-matching algorithm. Most of the participant members of VCSQI are also using Outcomes3 for STS data collection.

Please call us to arrange an online demonstration and discuss possible next steps.

Many thanks for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you.

Website:   www.cardioaccess.com

Description:  
CardioAccess is committed to becoming the world leader in medical information management and has been supplying automated information systems for more than 10 years.  Our products are designed and developed with the assistance of cardiothoracic surgeons and staff in order to deliver a product that is both useful and easy to use by all key medical personnel.
                  
CardioAccess has created the International Clinical Outcomes Database (ICO), a fully relational, comprehensive database for both congenital and adult heart disease.  CardioAccess products function as a tool for patient care, teaching, research and practice management.  The International Clinical Outcomes Database is comprised of three parts, the Congenital Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgical Database, the Adult Cardiovascular Surgical Database and the Adult Thoracic Surgical Database.  These databases include all of the required Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) data elements.  The goal of these databases is to provide medical practices with local or remote access to information leading to better medical care.
 
CardioAccess is pleased to announce that we are now 100% Phase I and Phase 2 certified for the 2.61 Adult Cardiac software specifications.  We were officially the first vendor to do so.  Users of our adult cardiovascular surgical database can now actively participate in the STS' data harvest as well as calculate the risk of patient mortality based on the STS risk stratification algorithms. 

CardioAccess has helped set the standard for data collection for congenital heart disease.  Currently, CardioAccess is one of only a few software vendors to offer a database to collect congenital heart disease surgical data. We have worked in conjunction with the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) and Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI) to standardize the way data is collected for pediatric heart surgery. Beginning in October 2002, CardioAccess users began successfully participating in STS Congenital Data Harvests.  This database is fully compliant with the standards set by the International Congenital Heart Surgery Nomenclature and Database Project which is described in detail in the April 2000 edition of the Annals of Thoracic Surgery.

CardioAccess users have successfully submitted data on coronary artery bypass graft surgeries to both the California CABG Outcomes Reporting Program (CCORP) and to the New York State Adult Cardiac Surgery Reporting System (CSRS) with the help of export utilities housed within the adult STS database.

Our Adult Thoracic Surgical Database has received certification from the STS based on the data specifications version 2.07.  The thoracic database is available as a stand-alone database or combined with our Adult Cardiovascular Surgical Database.
