National Register of Cardiovascular Interventions (NRKI)

National Health Registers

PURPOSE OF DETECTION OF REQUESTED DATA

The purpose of detection of requested data is establishment of a nationwide central health register of persons with socially serious ischemic heart diseases who underwent cardiovascular intervention (cathetrisation, angioplasty).

The register includes processed data necessary for identification of the case and the patient, data connected with the status of the patient in relation to he disease and execution of cardiovascular intervention of coronary vessels by cathetrisation (indication, course of problems, personal anamnesis, results of angiography, description of operation including procedures, associated performances and status), data on any non-coronary vascular interventions (in extremities) and data necessary for identification of the health establishment in which the intervention was performed.

The register helps to evaluation of the evolution of morbidity and quality of provided care in the field of cardiovascular interventions. In acute cases it provides information on previous therapy of the patient.

RANGE OF DATA PROVIDED BY HEALTH ESTABLISHMENTS TO NRKI

Since the end of 2003, NRKI is operated as a web application with central database. Health service workplaces commissioned by NRKI insert data to the register by means of internet connection via secure https protocol. Access to the register and assignment of user roles is authorised by the administrator of the register.
