Join a Registry
Your Partner for Quality Outcomes
The ICD Registry helps you be the champion of high quality care for your ICD patients
Since its inception in 2005, the ICD Registry has been the national standard for understanding patient selection, care and outcomes in patients receiving ICD therapy. The ICD Registry empowers EP physicians in their decision making by providing them with nationally benchmarked data on patient care and outcomes. See Top 15 Reasons to Participate in the ICD Registry.
The ICD Registry’s data, linked to Medicare claims for determining outcomes after implantation, have resulted in over 75 peer-reviewed scientific papers and studies addressing effectiveness, safety, equity, efficiency of care and, most important, our understanding of device selection and outcomes. You contribute directly to this critical research when you participate in the ICD Registry.
The ACC and NCDR are your partners in your commitment to quality outcomes.
