February 14, 2023 – Health IT vendor Veradigm, formerly Allscripts, announced a collaboration with healthcare data ecosystem HealthVerity that will leverage registry data to advance chronic disease research.
The partnership will bridge Veradigm’s cardiology and metabolic registries with consumer data collected by HealthVerity, offering clinical researchers access to research-ready data.
The Veradigm Cardiology Registry boasts over 102 million patient records representing more than 19.9 million unique patients, making it one of the largest outpatient cardiovascular quality improvement registries. The registry follows cardiac patients over time, monitoring essential measures such as demographics, plan of care, cardiac events and comorbidities, exams, procedures, lab values, and related medications.
Specifically, The Veradigm Cardiology Registry includes data on coronary artery disease (CAD), heart failure (HF), atrial fibrillation (AF), hypertension (HTN), and peripheral arterial disease (PAD).
The Veradigm Metabolic Registry seeks to track and enhance the standard of care for prediabetes, diabetes, and cardiometabolic conditions throughout the primary and specialty care continuum. The robust registry contains over 79 million records, which corresponds to over 13.5 million unique patient lives, 11,100 providers, and 3,400 office locations.
Veradigm data outlines patient demographics, A1c control, nephropathy, blood cholesterol, hypertension eye exam, foot exam, and antiplatelet therapy. Additionally, the EHR vendor will provide access to EHR data spanning the past five years, covering 176 million patients with clinical activity and 300 million medical claims.
“Veradigm provides life science researchers scalable access to real-world clinical data via our direct connection with the point-of-care,” Stuart Green, senior vice president, and general manager at Veradigm, said in a press release. “With Veradigm’s Registry and EHR data on the HealthVerity platform, we are extending the reach of the Veradigm Network to further support improvements in patient care at scale.”
The organizations said the collaboration between Veradigm and HealthVerity will make real-world data available through the HealthVerity IPGE platform, which also leverages patient matching and identity resolution to ensure researchers can view a patient longitudinal journey without fragmentation.
“Diabetes is a top driver of healthcare spend and, as we enter Heart Health Month, we are reminded of the need for comprehensive treatments for heart disease, a leading cause of death in the United States,” said Andrew Kress, CEO of HealthVerity. “This collaboration will enable far greater contextualization of important registry data and will provide a more holistic view of these patients’ journeys.
“Life Sciences organizations and clinical researchers can now obtain comprehensive patient-level data in a privacy-protected manner that offers real-world insight into the patient to ultimately improve care for these ubiquitous conditions.”
