The Operative Registry (DA Form 4108) has been the information source for surgical data supporting quality assurance and utilization review efforts at Madigan Army Medical Center.
Recently, Madigan's requirements for data and reporting changed.
Like other government medical facilities, Madigan began pervasive quality-improvement efforts.
This resulted in new ideas to measure hospital performance.
Consequently, requirements for surgical data required to support quality and resource management reporting, utilization review, residency review reporting, research, and credentialing changed.
This article details Madigan's approach to addressing these requirements via development of a comprehensive computing solution.
It discusses Madigan's fragmented data environment before system development and gives the reader perspective on the decision-making process that led to system development rather than purchasing a commercial product.
Finally, the article describes how a strong partnership between staff and developers was key to providing a solution that exceeded established goals.
