American College of Cardiology Launches the Nation's First Registry-Based Cardiovascular Practice Network
Date:10/26/2009

natural flow of practice operations will be the foundation for a practice's success clinically, financially and professionally," said Janet Wright, M.D., the ACC's senior vice president for Science and Quality. "By creating health information technology solutions for using ACC Guidelines and Appropriate Use Criteria at the point of care, the PINNACLE Network(TM) will show patients, colleagues and the health care community that we are delivering the right care for the right patient at the right time."

The PINNACLE Network(TM) is powered by the PINNACLE Registry(TM), the nation's first operational office-based data registry and will provide a centralized system for clinical practices to promote practice innovations and achieve clinical excellence.

The PINNACLE Registry(TM), designed by cardiologists, benefits from its two-year pilot phase as the IC3 Program and now will be integrated into the NCDR(R) to provide participants with access to both hospital and ambulatory patient-focused data. As one of the largest practice-level scientific efforts undertaken in the United States, the IC3 Program(R), now the PINNACLE Registry(TM), contains hundreds of thousands of clinical patient records focusing on four common cardiac conditions - coronary artery disease, hypertension, heart failure and atrial fibrillation.

The College is a 37,000-member nonprofit medical society and bestows the credential Fellow of the American College of Cardiology upon physicians who meet its stringent qualifications. The College is a leader in the formulation of health policy, standards and guidelines, and is a staunch supporter of cardiovascular research. The ACC provides professional education and operates
