Quality Improvement for Institutions


ACC Quality Summit

Submit Your ACC Quality Summit Abstracts Today!

The On Demand Abstract Submission Deadline has been extended to May 16!

Don't miss out on an opportunity to submit your abstract to be considered for a 15–30 minute On Demand Session!

Showcase how you use NCDR and Accreditation Services data to improve patient care, processes, and quality initiatives! Each year the ACC Quality Summit provides the opportunity for participants to learn from ACC staff and physician leaders — and your peers. This is your opportunity to share your successes and learn from each other!

Describe your experiences in the format of an abstract and submit them to us for consideration as an ePoster or oral presentation at the ACC Quality Summit, taking place Sept. 14 – 16, 2022. Last year we had over 90 posters and this year we are expecting more!

We invite submissions from ALL members of the cardiovascular and quality team!

Your Abstract Journey

Once you submit your abstract it will be reviewed by a team of topic specific experts, and if approved we'll select it for an On Demand Session or ePoster.

Abstracts approved for On Demand Sessions will be developed into a 15 - 30 minute video presentation to be recorded in the Cadmium system by the presenting author. One abstract will be selected per NCDR or Accreditation program for an On Demand Session.

All approved ePosters will be displayed in the Virtual Platform. The top twenty-five ePosters determined by the expert abstract reviewers will be highlighted in-person in the Summit Showcase Poster Hall. The six highest ranking abstracts will be invited to present their ePosters in-person and share their successful project.

We welcome submissions that describe innovative educational experiences, data collection processes, quality initiatives or research activities that take place in your institution and improve the care; or services you provide to your cardiovascular patients.

You may submit more than one abstract and may include portions of prior abstracts and/or manuscripts submitted or presented elsewhere if you have obtained appropriate copyright permissions.

Focus Areas Include:

  • Quality Improvement
  • Leading Quality Initiatives
  • Enhancing Data Collection and Submission
  • Population Health Management

On Demand Abstract Submission deadline is 11:59 p.m. ET on Monday, May 16, 2022.
