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.

Current CathPCI Registry participants have access to The Percutaneous Coronary Intervention Cost of Care Study. This report is a first step in providing a better understanding of variations in total cost of care for PCI, when evaluated against related quality of care measures in the CathPCI Registry,® and may help facilities improve the value of care delivery. To view your facility's PCI Cost of Care Study, log into NCDR and select "CathPCI/Reports/File Delivery." The study is only accessible on the private "File Delivery" page. Click here to learn more.
