Data to Answer Cardiology’s Most Critical Questions

The NCDR is well positioned to help researchers examine critical questions on the delivery and outcomes of cardiovascular health care. The NCDR’s growing base of hospitals and outpatient practices has resulted in a vast repository of clinical data.

The NCDR’s robust datasets hold answers to complex questions related to patient risk factors and outcomes; procedure and treatment trends; guidelines adherence; and device, facility and provider characteristics.
