Representative Kraft-Tharp presented House Bill 17-1246 to the committee, along with amendment L.001 (Attachment A). The bill implements several recommendations of the ST-elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) Task Force to improve medical care for heart attack patients. Specifically, the bill requires hospitals that are accredited by the American College of Cardiology Accreditation Services as a STEMI receiving center to report certain information to the National Cardiovascular Data Registry heart attack database. Other specified hospitals involved in heart attack care, but that are not accredited, are encouraged to report data to the database. Accredited hospitals that receive quarterly data reports from the heart attack database are required to submit the data to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) for state-level analysis. Information provided to the CDPHE is confidential, not subject to subpoena or disclosure, and shall only be used for the evaluation of hospital STEMI care. The CDPHE is also required to sign a letter of commitment with the American College of Cardiology concerning data confidentiality and acquisition of national heart attack data for benchmarking purposes.
