Endoscopy-registry: international example for automatic data extraction

This month, Gastrointestinal Endoscopy published an article about the successful automatic data extraction for the DGEA-registry (Dutch Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Audit). MRDM has been involved since the start in 2016, by developing and servicing the technical infrastructure. A collaboration was set-up with the three suppliers of endoscopy systems (RVC, Olympus, Chipsoft) in the Netherlands. The result is a fully automated data capture and transfer between the endoscopy systems and MRDM, where the data is processed and used in the clinical registry and dashboards (Codman).

The goal of the DGEA-registry is to gain insight into the quality of colonoscopies and to stimulate improvement of processes by providing a benchmark to the participating hospitals. Between 2016 and 2019, 48 hospitals have participated in the DGEA on a voluntary basis. Information about 313,511 colonoscopies was registered for 275,017 patients. The results of this study demonstrate that it is feasible to deploy a quality registry collecting uniform data, without additional administrative burden for healthcare professionals.

The DGEA is a textbook example of an outcome registry without additional administrative burden for the hospital. And that is exactly the goal of this publication, which has already led to international interest in the solution developed by MRDM. The article can be accessed via PubMed: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32057727/.
