ACC and AHA Create a Unified National Acute Coronary Syndromes Registry to Measure and Improve Cardiovascular Patient Care

DALLAS, May 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American College of Cardiology Foundation's National Cardiovascular Data Registry (NCDR(R)) and the American Heart Association's Get With The Guidelines(SM) (GWTG)-Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) Registry announced today they are joining together to create a national unified registry for measuring and improving safety and outcomes for patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). Acute coronary syndrome is an umbrella diagnosis that encompasses both a type of heart attack known as non ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) and unstable angina, or chest pain.

This collaboration joins two leading national coronary artery disease registries, NCDR's ACTION Registry and GWTG-CAD Registry, to create the largest and most comprehensive national cardiovascular patient database ever developed by the medical profession. This new registry, called ACTION Registry (R)-GWTG (TM), will establish the national standard for understanding and improving the quality, safety and outcomes of care provided for patients with coronary artery disease.

While the ACC and the AHA have a history of collaboration by establishing joint clinical guidelines for cardiovascular care, the ACTION Registry(R)-GWTG(TM) is the first registry partnership between the two groups. This unified partnership brings the best of both programs to a single registry, ultimately offering more benchmarking and quality improvement power to hundreds and eventually thousands of hospitals across the country providing care for patients with ACS.
