MIDAS - Myocardial Infarction Data Acquisition System

Overview

The value of disease registries lies in the completeness of the collected data (Ingelfinger 2004). Controlled clinical trials have strict rules for admission, studying only a small percent of patients, and cost a lot of money to carry out. In contrast, research using existing administrative data is inexpensive in effort and money, and includes whole populations (Chambless 1997).

The MIDAS project (as the New Jersey Myocardial Infarction surveillance System) was initially funded in 1990 by pilot grants from the State of New Jersey and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to use hospital billing data to explore areas of interest in myocardial infarction epidemiology.  The results were published in Circulation (MIDAS 1).  Subsequently, the MIDAS study group has published and/or presented more than 60 papers abstracts (see below publication list).

The MIDAS study group continues work in the linkage of all cardiovascular disease admissions and readmissions for subsequent events and invasive cardiology procedures (e.g. revascularization) in order to construct a longitudinal framework to characterize the changing trends and natural history of cardiovascular disease and utilization of invasive cardiology services in New Jersey.
