ACC Foundation’s NCDR To Launch ACS Registry

The American College of Cardiology Foundation’s National Cardiovascular Data Registry (NCDR) says it will launch a new initiative on Jan. 7, 2007, to improve safety and outcomes for patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS). The initiative will combine the data collection and quality reporting features of two leading national ACS registries to create the largest and most comprehensive national cardiovascular patient database ever developed.

The NCDR-ACTION Registry will establish a national standard for understanding treatment patterns, clinical outcomes, drug safety, and the overall quality of care provided for ACS patients. The registry represent a collaboration between: The National Registry for Myocardial Infarction (NRMI), an observational study sponsored by Genentech, Inc., and CRUSADE, a quality improvement program coordinated by the Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI) and sponsored by Schering Plough and Bristol-Myers Squibb Sanofi Partnership.
