A patient registry is a type of observational study that uses methods to collect and describe data on many topics including the natural history of disease, clinical- or cost- effectiveness of health care devices, products or processes, safety monitoring, and quality of care. Registries can provide real world evidence on how a disease progresses, the safety or effectiveness of a treatment, and how a health care service is provided within or between populations.
KAI has experience in large-scale registries both domestically and internationally; based on this experience we have developed innovative and cost-effective strategies to collect registry data allowing for an accurate snapshot of patient clinical information and characteristics as well as health care services and quality over a period of time. Once the specifications are defined, KAI can establish a registry database which can be expanded to include an unlimited number of patient populations. The KAI approach and our in-house systems provide the ability to collect, track and measure registry data in order to effectively describe the outcomes of interest. Additionally, registry data can be used to:
- create the foundation of a broad risk management program
- understand and track the natural history of disease
- determine patient population dynamics and treatments
- aggregate analysis using built in validated reports
Using a KAI developed Registry Web Portal clinicians and investigators can obtain real-time information, including overall registry and site –specific status. The portal provides an easy-to-use dashboard that provides interactive tools to obtain ongoing, comprehensive views of the important aspects of how a product or system is performing in the real world.
