For implantable cardioverter defibrillators and leads

The ICD Registry™ is a nationwide quality program that helps participating hospitals measure and improve care for patients receiving implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs). To quality-conscious facilities like you, the registry is more than the CMS-mandated data repository for implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) procedures. The 80 percent of participating hospitals that report data on all implantations — regardless of payer or indication — have made the registry a powerful quality benchmarking tool for any facility involved in ICD implantation, upgrade or replacement.

The ICD Registry captures:

  • ICD/CRT-D generators for primary and secondary prevention
  • Atrial, ventricular, defibrillator, and left-heart lead data at time of implant, revision, replacement, or abandonment
  • Pediatric ICD implantation data

There are a number of reasons why participation is so important:

  • The ICD Registry establishes a national standard for understanding treatment patterns, clinical outcomes, device safety, and the overall quality of care provided to ICD implantation patients
  • As the CMS-mandated registry for hospitals that perform ICD implantation procedures, the ICD Registry plays an important role in determining whether an ICD implantation was indicated for each Medicare beneficiary
  • Participation improves adherence to the ACC/AHA Clinical Guidelines recommendations, and explores the association between evidence-based treatment strategies and clinical outcomes
