Data Submission

Data can be collected and submitted to the registry in one of three ways.

Certified Reporting Vendors

ASE certifies each reporting vendor to assure the software contains all data elements as defined in the data dictionary, the data submission file conforms to ImageGuide specifications, and the data can be successfully transmitted and loaded into the registry.

Below are the Software Reporting Vendors for the ImageGuideEchoTM Registry.

 

Registry participants who wish to use a certified reporting vendor to submit data must first enroll in the ImageGuideEcho Registry. After enrollment, you may contact the vendor directly with assistance on data transmission. Please contact Info@ImageGuideEcho.org or call 919-297-7174 to enroll.

Web-based Data Collection Tool

Vendors who wish to become a Certified ImageGuide Reporting Vendor can view our Vendor Certification Process Information Document for more information on the process. If you have any questions or if you would like to initiate the Vendor Certification Process, please contact Info@ImageGuideEcho.org or call 919-297-7174.

ImageGuide has developed a data collection tool for institutions to enter imaging study data directly into the registry. Time estimates for each imaging study will take approximately 2-3 minutes to enter into the web, and staff/support personnel may be able to assist with data entry.
