Characteristics, management and outcomes of patients presenting with chest pain and acute coronary syndrome using data extracted from electronic records from Sydney Health Partners
Chest pain is one of the leading medical reasons for presentation to Emergency Departments. If related to the heart, it is commonly due to an acute coronary syndrome, a leading cause of mortality, morbidity and health care costs in Australia.
SPEED-EXTRACT aims to use electronic medical records to optimise the patient journey and outcomes across Sydney Health Partners local health districts in Sydney. The application of novel data analytic techniques will enable the identification of contributing factors to adverse outcomes and improve clinical care.
SPEED-EXTRACT will show the value of harnessing large number of electronic medical records that will lead to the development of near real-time clinical data audit and feedback, framework systems for clinical decision support and continuing medical education. Once the data collected is transformed into a well documented dataset, it will open the possibility for the application and development of advanced analytical methods to answer more specific questions uncovered by performing the original study.
