Quality Improvement for Institutions


ACC Quality Summit

Submit Your ACC Quality Summit Abstracts Today!

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 Live Session at the ACC Quality Summit taking place Oct. 11 – 13. Last year we had over 75 posters and this year, we anticipate having more submissions as we return to the traditional in-person conference experience!

Important Dates

Live Session Abstract Submission Deadline is 11:59 p.m. Monday, June 5, 2023

ePoster Abstract Submission Deadline is 11:59 p.m. Monday, July 10, 2023.

Share Your Journey!

The ACC Quality Summit is your opportunity to share your quality improvement journey and learn from each other. Describe your experiences in an abstract format and submit them for consideration as an ePoster or Live Session at the upcoming ACC Quality Summit.

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

If your abstract is accepted as a Live Session, you will be invited to serve as ACC Quality Summit faculty. A Quality Summit Educational Track lead will be in contact with you to help you develop your content for presentation to be part of a 60 minutes session. On average your presentation will be 15-20 minutes.

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

This is an excellent opportunity to share innovative educational experiences, team-based collaboration, data collection processes, quality initiatives or research activities that take place in your institution and improve the delivery of care or services you provide to your cardiovascular patients.
