This report presents the first year's experience of a totally computerized cardiac catheterization laboratory reporting system, including the results and complications of invasive and interventional procedures. Sixty-three laboratories reported a total of 71,916 patients studied between January 1 through December 31, 1990. Two previous registry reports have been published. Compared with data acquired by previous methods, in spite of an older and sicker population, the mortality for diagnostic procedures has remained remarkably constant (0.11%). The computerized format facilitates data collection and analysis, helps resolve new issues as they arise and serves as a method of monitoring quality of laboratories and individuals.
