Multilevel models for clinical registers concerning STEMI patients in a complex urban reality: a statistical analysis of MOMI2 survey

Francesca Ieva, Anna Maria Paganoni

Abstract


In this work we describe statistical analyses conducted on MOMI2 (MOnth MOnitoring Myocardial Infarction in MIlan) survey, a collection of data concerning patients admitted with STEMI (ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction) diagnosis in one of the hospitals belonging to the Network in Milan urban area. The main goal of the analyses is statistical exploration, description and model of collected data in order to answer specific clinical questions (i.e. whether the result of certain healthcare policy is less or more effective than another one, whether the logistic organization or time scheduling of Emergency Room (ER) and rescue units can be improved, etc). Such results can be used as an effective support to decisional process for clinical and organizational governance.
The fundamental result of this study is not only the use of advanced and innovative statistical tools, but also the social impact of the achieved results thanks to the synergic interaction between statisticians and physicians.
