Abstract

Introduction: Ischemic heart disease is the leading cause of death in the world. In Brazil, in 2013, acute myocardial infarction (AMI) was the main cause of mortality due to heart disease. A better identification of the patients will serve as a tool to improve the treatment of this pathology. Objective: To expand the database of patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) of the Cardiology Institute (Porto Alegre-RS, Brazil). Methods and Results: The following steps were taken: (1) data elements standardisation in accordance with standard variables, including all applicable standardized data elements published by the American Heart Association / American College of Cardiology, and Brazilian national datasets standards; (2) Development of electronic case reports (CRF) using REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) and in accordance with the HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) privacy rule ; And (3) expansion of registration to other referral centers. The participating institutions are distributed in the regions of Santa Maria, Passo Fundo, Caxias do Sul all of Rio Grande do Sul, as well as the regions of Santa Catarina and the Distrito Federal in Brasília. The data collected will be stored according to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. Conclusion: The enhancement and expansion of the RIAM Registry to other referral centers is generating data directly into the REDCap CRF, is a tool with results the treatment of AMI in our environment, which contributes to clinical practice, health services management and policies.
