We are excited to announce that Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) has published the Cardiac Procedure Note (CPN), and it is open for public comment until June 25, 2017. Your insight is invaluable to the refinement of this project, which will considerably strengthen patient care and leverage reimbursement through structured reporting.
What is the Cardiac Procedure Note?
Through his role as co-chair of the Cardiology Domain Technical Committee of the IHE, heartbase President Nicholas Gawrit has co-authored the Cardiac Procedure Note, which sets the standard for interoperability between cardiovascular service lines, streamlines data collection to help hospitals meet registry goals, and maximizes compliance to MACRA and MIPS for unmatched reimbursement.
Who does the Cardiac Procedure Note Affect?
The CPN was written with cardiology units in mind, and will greatly help cardiologists across all subspecialties. While the CPN is highly technical in nature and may not be directly applicable to you as a clinician and caregiver, it has far-reaching implications within health care facilities as a whole. We ask that you forward this information to the following stakeholders within your health system: Chairs of Cardiology, Directors of Cardiovascular Services, Electrophysiologists, and all physicians who are both clinically and technically inclined.
How was the CPN Created?
The Report Content for the CPN is defined based on the following:
• ACC/AHA/SCAI 2014 Health Policy Statement on Structured Reporting for the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory
• 2016 ACC/ASE/ASNC/HRS/SCAI Health Policy Statement on Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise
• ACC-NCDR ICD dataset and the ACC NCDR ICD version 1.2 and leveraging clinical data standards like ICD9/10, SNOMED, LOINC and IEEE 11073-10103 nomenclature.
• ACC-NCDR Cath/PCI dataset and the ACC NCDR Cath/PCI version 4.4, leveraging clinical data standards like ICD9/10, SNOMED and LOINC.
• STS/ACC TVT Registry dataset version 2.0
We Need Your Insight
Heartbase and the IHE are committed to improving the healthcare industry by increasing interoperability to reduce redundancy and allow cardiologists to freely exchange reports and clinical procedure data. Your feedback is extremely important to us.
