Providing Answers That Advance Cardiovascular Care

About NCDR Research

The NCDR  is positioned to examine critical questions pertaining to cardiovascular healthcare and its delivery. The NCDR’s substantial participant base comprising hospitals and outpatient practices, coupled with a growing patient population, have allowed for the creation of a vast repository of clinical data invaluable to those wishing to conduct cardiovascular research. The NCDR’s robust datasets hold answers to complex questions by collecting relevant clinical information such as patient risk factors and outcomes; procedure and treatment trends; guidelines adherence; and device, facility and provider characteristics.

How to Participate in NCDR Research

Offering two distinct opportunities for engagement in research, the NCDR allows individuals and organizations to submit hypothesis-driven research requests based on analysis of NCDR data. For information, visit our Research & Publications page.

In addition, the NCDR offers hospitals, practices and cardiac care facilities opportunities to participate in a growing number of government and privately funded NCDR research projects.
