ICD Registry™ is now the EP Device Implant Registry™

On April 1, 2021, the registry name changed to the EP Device Implant Registry™ to reflect a minor update to Version 2.3 that now offers the opportunity to include select novel pacemaker procedures in addition to the current procedure types. Participants can submit data for select novel pacemaker procedures or submit data for ICD/CRT-D procedures or submit data for both. The registry captures data on shared decision-making, a requirement for the CMS National Coverage Determination for ICD/CRT-D primary prevention device implants.

The EP Device Implant Registry™ continues to be your single and most trusted source of evidence-based data collection and reporting for ICD/CRT-D procedures. Participating in the registry is still the most reliable way to ensure your hospital’s documentation meets the current CMS National Coverage Determination requirements for ICD/CRT-D implantations.

Hospitals and EP labs across the U.S. rely on the EP Device Implant Registry

Since its inception in 2005, the ICD Registry --now the EP Device Implant Registry-- has been the national standard for understanding patient selection, care and outcomes in patients receiving ICD therapy. The registry empowers EP physicians in their decision making by providing them with nationally benchmarked data on patient care and outcomes. Learn more about the EP Registry Suite advantage.
