Title: The North Carolina Acute Stroke Registry

The North Carolina Acute Stroke Registry A Story
of Collaboration E.Puckett, W.Rosamond,
S.Huston, T.Brown
CDC Issues Request for Applications in 2001
  • The RFA for development of a Paul Coverdell Acute
    Stroke Registry prototype generated great
    interest in NC
  • A number of Academic Medical Centers were
    interested in applying
  • The State HDSP program convened a series of
    conference calls to discuss strategy

NC HDSP Program Convenes Stakeholders
  • Participants on the calls included
  • Representatives of academic centers as well as
    non-academic hospitals
  • Members of the NC Heart Disease and Stroke
    Prevention Task Force
  • NC members of the Tri-State Stroke Network

Coming to Consensus
  • After discussions, the group decided
  • NC was well positioned to compete for prototype
  • Our position would be stronger with a single
    collaborative proposal rather than multiple
    competing proposals
  • To reduce competitive pressures, lead should be
    Dr. Wayne Rosamond of the UNC-Chapel Hill School
    of Public Health

NC Prototype Funded in 2002
  • Goals for Prototype
  • Design and pilot test a real-time data collection
    and analysis system to measure delivery of care
    to patients with acute stroke
  • Implement a feed-back mechanism to participating
    hospitals to facilitate quality improvement

Specific Aims of NC Stroke Registry Prototype
  • Identify and enroll acute stroke cases in 11
    hospitals of varying size, type and location
    across NC
  • Record information related to symptom onset,
    diagnostic evaluation, acute treatments,
    discharge status and plan
  • Develop mechanism for timely transmission of
    registry data elements
  • Conduct process evaluation
  • Write a development plan for statewide registry

? Prospective Data Collection
Key Features, continued….
? Real time data reporting
Results from Prototype
  • 2620 patients enrolled between 12/02 10/03
  • 60 identified in ED
  • Onset time obtained from patient in 54 of cases,
    informant in 46
  • Onset time missing from 1/3 of medical records -
    underscoring importance of prospective data

Conclusions from Prototype
  • A prospective, emergency department-based
    registry of acute stroke patients is feasible
  • Collaborative approach allowed input from and
    testing in a wide variety of environments
  • Prospective method results in higher capture of
    symptom onset time compared to chart review
  • Rapid data feedback made available to hospitals
    may facilitate quality improvement efforts for
    acute stroke

2004 Funding for Implementation
  • 33 State HDSP Programs eligible to apply
  • NC - same collaborative approach, same writing
    team, State HDSP lead
  • NC proposal built on relationships developed
    around and lessons learned from prototype

Implementation Funding Awarded !
  • State Stroke Registry Coordinator position
  • Contract with UNC-Chapel Hill Dept of
  • more focused and streamlined data collection
  • data elements consistent with CDC requirements
  • expanded sites (25 in Year 1)
  • revised and enhanced web site

NC HDSP Funding Growth
Lessons Learned
  • Establishment of the NC Heart Disease Stroke
    Prevention Task Force in 1995 led to
  • CDC awarding NC comprehensive CVH funding in 1998
  • Convening of Tri-State Stroke Summit in 1999
  • Publication of Unexplained Stroke Disparity
    report in 2000
  • Supplemental CDC funding for Tri-State Stroke
    Network in 2000
  • NC Collaborative Stroke Registry prototype

More Lessons
  • Relationships developed, resources garnered,
    capacity developed and lessons learned led to
  • Collaboration not competition for prototype
    funding proposal
  • Successful prototype developed and tested
  • Successful proposal for implementation
