So much of our clinical interaction with patients revolves around the collection, analysis and application of information. On a much broader scale, data registries work to assemble the information from each and every one of these clinical encounters. In this age of information, there is so much data at our fingertips, it is easy to be excited about the potential. How are we harnessing the information available to us, toward the improvement of clinical outcomes? Dr. John Rumsfeld, professor of medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, and chief science officer for the National Cardiovascular Data Registry, an initiative led by the American College of Cardiology Foundation, talks with host Dr. Jack Lewin.
