Developing Multicenter Registries to Advance Quality Science


Developing Multicenter Registries to Advance Quality Science

Laura E Schleelein et al. Anesthesiol Clin.


There are several benefits to clinical registries as an information repository tool, ultimately lending itself to the acquisition of new knowledge. Registries have the unique advantage of garnering much data quickly and are, therefore, especially helpful for niche populations or low-prevalence diseases. They can be used to inform on the ideal structure, process, or outcome involving an identified population. The data can be used in many ways, for example, as an observational tool to reveal associations or as a basis for framing future research studies or quality improvement projects.
