Now Available as E-Book: User’s Guide on Developing Patient Registries
“Registries for Evaluating Patient Outcomes: A User’s Guide, 3rd Edition,” an AHRQ Effective Health Care Program publication, is now available in e-book format. This user’s guide provides information on the design, implementation, analysis, interpretation and evaluation of registries for patient outcomes. The guide was first published in 2007 as a reference for establishing, maintaining and evaluating the success of registries created to collect data about patient outcomes. The second edition, published in 2010, provided updates to the existing topics and addressed four new topics. In the third edition, information on new methodological and technological advances has been incorporated into the existing chapters, and 11 chapters addressing emerging topics in registry science have been added.
