NCDR report sheds light on CV trends

A new report highlighting data from the American College of Cardiology’s (ACC) National Cardiovascular Data Registry (NCDR) provides a snapshot of the many ways clinical registry data can be used to assess quality of care and outcomes associated with broad populations of patients with cardiovascular disease.

“The report provides a critical, national perspective on cardiac care and outcomes in both the in-patient and outpatient settings,” said NCDR Senior Medical Officer Frederick A. Masoudi, MD, MSPH. “In general, the report highlights the many improvements in quality of care that have occurred over the past three years, while also shedding light on areas where we can continue to improve,” he adds.
