NCDR Participants may choose from a list of certified software vendors that facilitate the submission of data to the NCDR on a quarterly basis. Certified software allows the participating facility to submit data to the NCDR on a quarterly basis, and in some cases, can be integrated into existing hospital systems. As a result, many software applications do much more than collect and export registry data. For this reason, each participant should consider their own software requirements when reviewing the vendor information.

Participants of ACTION Registry–GWTG, CathPCI Registry, ICD Registry, IMPACT Registry and PVI Registry may instead choose to use a complimentary web-based data collection tool provided by the NCDR. Use of this tool does not involve using a software vendor, and allows hospitals to collect the most basic data for internal reporting. For information about this option, please contact the NCDR Service Center at (800) 257-4737 or
