ACC Public Reporting Opportunity Now Available For CathPCI Registry and ICD Registry Hospitals

All hospitals participating in the NCDR’s CathPCI Registry and/or ICD Registry now have the opportunity to review and voluntarily report their results on several registry-specific measures. Hospitals that choose to participate in this effort will have their rating posted on starting in late October or early November. The ACC is encouraging eligible hospitals to take advantage of this opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to transparency and quality improvement. Learn more about this public reporting opportunity and how hospitals can enroll. The ACC also released a Data Quality Checklist to help NCDR hospitals ensure that all steps in their data management process produce complete, accurate, reliable and valid data. The checklist is accessible via the Quality Improvement for Institutions Clinical Toolkits page (select “Public Reporting Toolkit”).
