is the ACC's worldwide suite of data registries helping hospitals and private practices measure and improve the quality of cardiovascular care they provide. The NCDR encompasses six hospital-based registries and one outpatient registry, making it the most comprehensive outcomes-based quality improvement program in the United States. With growing domestic and international participation, the NCDR currently has more than 2,400 hospitals and nearly 1,000 outpatient providers participating.
A trusted resource, the NCDR has developed clinical modules that support the areas of cardiovascular care where quality can be measured, benchmarked, and improved to make a difference in patients' lives. With 18 million patient records, the NCDR has the deep clinical data needed to provide an evidence-based rationale that informs treatment choices and lowers treatment costs.
Currently, the NCDR suite of cardiovascular data registries covers the following areas of clinical focus:
- Acute coronary syndrome
- Carotid artery revascularization and endarterectomy procedures
- Diagnostic cardiac catheterization and percutaneous coronary intervention
- Implantable cardioverter defibrillator and leads procedures
- Pediatric and adult congenital treatment procedures
- Transcatheter valve therapy procedures
- Outpatient cardiovascular care for coronary artery disease, heart failure, hypertension and atrial fibrillation
- Coming in 2014: Lower extremity peripheral vascular intervention procedures
