Make the Connection!

NCDR Registries deliver quality data for benchmarking. National quality initiatives connect to hospital registries and outpatient registries to facilitate data monitoring by providing the assessment, monitoring, and evaluation tools needed to transform data into practical, lasting solutions. 

ACTION-GWTG Registry®

Risk-adjusted, outcomes-based quality improvement program that focuses exclusively on high-risk STEMI/NSTEMI patients

Related Initiative(s):

  • Door-to-Balloon: Reduce D2B times to 90 minutes or less in hospitals treating patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) with emergency percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)
  • Surviving MI: Increase adoption of evidence-based strategies associated with lower 30-day risk standardized mortality rates (RSMR) for patients hospitalized AMI through the creation of a hospital learning network


CathPCI Registry®

Assesses the characteristics, treatments and outcomes of cardiac disease patients who receive diagnostic catheterization and/or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures

Related Initiative(s):

  • Door-to-Balloon: Reduce D2B times to 90 minutes or less in hospitals treating patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) with emergency percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)


IMPACT Registry®

Assesses the prevalence, demographics, management and outcomes of pediatric and adult congenital heart disease (CHD) patients who undergo diagnostic catheterizations and catheter-based interventions; Supports the development of evidence-based guidelines for CHD treatment that will improve outcomes for CHD patients of all ages

Related Initiative(s):

  • Radiation Risk: Improve congenital heart disease patient outcomes by reducing the radiation exposure received by patients undergoing congenital cardiac catheterization by 25% from baseline; Cultivate quality improvement program capabilities in catheterization programs and hospitals

  • ACPC Quality Network (QNet): Provides participants and corresponding practices a means of engaging in quality measurement and improvement targeted to the congenital heart disease (CHD) and pediatric cardiology community

  • ACPC Transitions of Care Tools: Provide a comprehensive approach to begin to manage transitions for patients with congenital heart conditions
