Device Related Monitoring & Outcome


An inaugural focus of MINICOR is to develop data-driven tools for the identification of patients most likely to benefit from device- or ablation-related interventions across non-ischemic and ischemic cardiomyopathy populations.  To achieve this goal broad representation of patients receiving implantable monitoring devices (ie: ILR), Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillators (ICDs) and/or Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) is desired.  

Data Collection and Standardized Reporting

Sites will be enabled with automated patient consent / health questionnaires and API-based integration with local device vendor software.to automate device interrogation data upload. A tablet-based App is provided to patients upon arrival to the Device Clinic that automatically consents patients according to institutional REB requirements.  Consent triggers a brief questionnaire and automated collection of device interrogation results from each site's vendor software.  This is stored to the site's secure server along with a de-identified copy of the interrogation dataset.  The latter is automatically transferred to the EP Core Laboratory for standardized adjudications, which are provided back to the site for their own research purposes.
