In this work we describe design, aims and contents of the ST-segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) Archive, which is a multicenter observational clinical registry planned within the Strategic Program Exploitation, integration and study of current and future health databases in Lombardia for Acute Myocardial Infarction . This is an observational disease registry that collects clinical indicators, process indicators and outcomes concerning STEMI patients admitted to any hospital in Lombardia Region. This registry is arranged to be automatically linked to the Public Health Database, the on going administrative databank of Lombardia Region. In this work we also provide an example of statistical tools implemented on a pilot integrated database in order to explore and model such an informative database.
