Quality Improvement for Institutions

CathPCI Registry

Your Connection For Quality Outcomes

The CathPCI Registry® assesses the characteristics, treatments and outcomes of cardiac disease patients who receive diagnostic catheterization and/or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures. This powerful tool, available for any facility that performs PCI, captures the data that measure adherence to ACC/AHA clinical practice guideline recommendations, procedure performance standards and appropriate use criteria (AUC) for coronary revascularization.

Real-world Study - The FDA approved the CathPCI Registry to help inform about the Shockwave Coronary IVL System in a “real-world” setting. To engage in this initiative the v5 data set and the Auxiliary data set will be completed for patients in the CathPCI Registry who received PCI and in whom a Shockwave Intravascular Lithotripsy (IVL) System with Shockwave C2 Coronary IVL Catheter was utilized.

CathPCI Registry Welcomes Participation From Any Facility Performing PCI, Sept. 28, 2021
PCI performance in ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) “is increasingly recognized as a potential novel means of threading the needle of quality, safety, affordability, convenience, and shared-decision making for select patients,” Kendrick A. Shunk, MD, PhD, FACC, chair of the CathPCI Registry Steering Committee, writes in a Sept. 16 letter to the editor in Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions. Writing in response to a 2020 Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions position statement that “inadvertently” stated the CathPCI Registry does not accept data from ASCs, Shunk notes the CathPCI Registry accepts data from any facility that performs PCI. “NCDR fundamentally supports the approach of focusing on care provision, rather than site of service, in the belief that this will better serve the interests of patients and other stakeholders such as payers or regulators in ensuring consistent quality of care, wherever it occurs,” he says.
