iveness and safety. The systems are also part of National Heart Lung and Blood Institute's Cardiovascular Research Network. The results will also be helpful to HHS' Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, which has covered ICDs for certain patients since 2005 and has required that certain Medicare patients receiving the devices be enrolled in a national registry.  

The study will follow 3,500 patients with ICDs from the Cardiovascular Research Network to determine how often the devices deliver shocks, whether the shocks are appropriate, and to identify those patients who are most likely to require ICD shocks. AHRQ is providing $2.1 million to construct the study sample and collect ICD shock data within the first 2 years of the study. The American College of Cardiology Foundation is providing $1.4 million to collect and analyze shock data during the remainder of the study.

Alfred A. Bove, M.D., president of the American College of Cardiology, said the group is thrilled to collaborate with AHRQ on the study.  "This partnership and the size and scope of this project are promising steps toward a better quality of life for those with ICDs," he said.

The study is being led by Fred Masoudi, M.D., M.S.P.H., an investigator at Kaiser Permanente Colorado and an Associate Professor of Medicine in the Denver Health Medical Center's Division of Cardiology, and Robert Greenlee, Ph.D., M.P.H., a research scientist at the Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation's Epidemiology Research Center in Marshfield, Wisconsin.  Both organizations are members of the HMO Research Network.
