Trailblazing the Future!

Join the NCDR 2018 Annual Conference (NCDR.18) March 7-9, 2018 at the Caribe Royale in Orlando, Florida and go beyond data collection and learn how your hospital or health systems can blaze trails in quality improvement. 

As an attendee you will have the opportunity to gain new NCDR registry-specific and industry knowledge, take away best practices through networking and posters, and discover tools and techniques for improving healthcare quality within your organization.

New for 2018—More Choices and Greater Flexibility!

Case Scenarios: Participants asked us for more case scenarios.  They also expressed they usually represent more than one registry at the annual conference.  We heard you and made several changes this year so you can customize your experience:

  • Two, 40 minute workshops in the place of one 90 minute workshop on March 8 and March 9. 
  • Workshops repeated in the second 40 minute slot (except the Interprofessional Practice).
  • ACTION Registry, ICD Registry, CathPCI Registry and STS/ACC TVT Registry agendas further divided into two 40 minute sessions--one for case scenarios and one for other relevant topics.

Not to miss sessions, include the opening keynote session featuring Douglas. B. Fridsma, MD, PhD, president and CEO of the American Medical Informatics Association, as the Ralph G. Brindis Keynote Lecturer. Fridsma will tackle the barriers and opportunities for streamlining data capture and provide an outline for future data interoper-ability.
