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 CardioSmart.org, ACC’s patient education and empowerment initiative starting in late October or early November. The ACC encourages 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 to enroll. Additionally, a Data Quality Checklist is now available 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”). This tool is part of a new Public Reporting Toolkit designed to help NCDR hospitals improve on overall quality and performance for all registries, as well as publicly reported ICD Registry and CathPCI Registry metrics.
