The NCDR® is the American College of Cardiology’s suite of data registries helping hospitals and private practices measure and improve the quality of cardiovascular care they provide. The NCDR encompasses six hospital-based registries and one outpatient registry, making it the most comprehensive outcomes-based quality improvement program in the United States. With growing domestic and international participation, there are currently more than 2,400 hospitals and nearly 1,000 outpatient providers participating in NCDR registries.

A trusted resource, the NCDR has developed clinical modules that support the areas of cardiovascular care where quality can be measured, benchmarked, and improved to make a difference in patients’ lives. With 18 million patient records, the NCDR has the deep clinical data needed to provide an evidence-based rationale that informs treatment choices and lowers treatment costs.
