Data on the Move

ACC Around the World | The ACC continues to broaden the reach of its outpatient cardiovascular data registries worldwide. Most recently the ACC partnered with the Mexico Chapter, in collaboration with both the Sociedad Mexicana de Cardiología and the Asociación Nacional de Cardiólogos de México, to establish a registry network that is aligned with the PINNACLE Registry. Mexico is the fourth country to partner with the PINNACLE Registry, which captures data on coronary artery disease, hypertension, heart failure, diabetes and atrial fibrillation. India, Brazil and Argentina are the other three. “It will take a global effort to reduce the burden of heart disease and we look forward to continuing these efforts with the dedicated cardiovascular community in Mexico,” said ACC President Kim Allan Williams Sr., MD, FACC.

The ACC has also partnered with the National Heart Centre Singapore (NHCS) to create a global diabetes registry that will support diabetes and cardiometabolic research and provide new opportunities to improve the quality of care provided to patients around the world. The joint effort will bring the newly created NHCS Asian Diabetes Outcomes Registry, known as ADORE, into partnership with the Diabetes Collaborative Registry, expanding the ACC-led registry into 12 countries across Asia to create the first global, cross-specialty clinical diabetes registry.

“This collaboration has the potential to generate unique, insightful, high-impact research that will likely affect the lives of millions of people,” said Mikhail N. Kosiborod, MD, FACC, steering committee chair of the Diabetes Collaborative Registry. “Expanding the Diabetes Collaborative Registry into Asia will also expand our ability to track and improve the quality of diabetes and cardiometabolic care for patients.”
