The ACC will begin collecting COVID-19 data through the NCDR Chest Pain – MI Registry and the CathPCI Registry to capture the relationship between COVID-19 and heart disease and maximize data on the cardiac impact of the virus.

With the new data module, the registries will collect data on COVID-19 status for all patients.

Among affected patients, the new module also will collect data on key biomarkers that may reflect cardiac damage in COVID-19 patients, hospital events that may reflect complications of COVID-19 and COVID-19 therapies that may have cardiac effects.

Unlike other new COVID-19 registries, hospitals and systems already participating in both registries will not need to join a new registry or engage in a new way to submit their data. Read more.
