Cardiac Science to Supply Q-Tel Data to AACVPR Cardiac Rehabilitation Registry

BOTHELL, Wash., July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cardiac Science Corporation, a global leader in external defibrillation, diagnostic devices and monitoring systems, has announced it will provide data from its Quinton® Q-Tel® Rehabilitation Management Systems to the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation's (AACVPR) Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation Registry.


The web-based registry is the first of its kind in the United States and will provide cardiac rehabilitation professionals with means to track, document and communicate patient outcomes and program performance.

"We are honored to provide data to this national registry and help sponsor AACVPR in this vital effort to help rehabilitation programs obtain useful benchmarking data," said Neal Long, Cardiac Science president and chief executive officer.

"The registry will integrate with other AACVPR strategic initiatives, including program certification and performance measures, to increase program quality and provide data that are currently unavailable regarding the outcomes of cardiac rehabilitation," said Steven Lichtman, AACVPR 2011–2012 President. 

When launched, the registry will allow cardiac rehabilitation professionals to track patient outcomes and program performance in accord with evidence-based guidelines. In addition, it will demonstrate the positive impact of cardiac rehabilitation on morbidity, mortality, physical function and quality of life for heart patients in the United States.
