ACC Analytic Center

American College of Cardiology Analytic Center: ICD & CathPCI Registries


Since 2007, Yale CORE has served as an analytic center for the ICD RegistryTM and the CathPCI Registry® of the American College of Cardiology Foundation’s National Cardiovascular Data Registry (NCDR®). More recently, the ACTION Registry® was added. The goal of this work is to generate new knowledge and insights into the care of patients with cardiovascular disease through analysis of the robust data submitted to the NCDR® registries. A team of CORE researchers work closely with NCDR® staff to provide logistical and analytical support for research proposals related to its ICD Registry®, CathPCI RegistryTM and ACTION Registry®.

As of May 2015, 71 studies of the ICD RegistryTM have been conducted, resulting in 51 published (or in press) articles and 52 abstracts presented at professional meetings. For the CathPCI Registry®, 30 studies have been supported by Yale CORE analysis, resulting in the publication of 15 papers and the presentation of 24 abstracts at conferences. Work on the ACTION Registry® has resulted in one published article and one presented abstract.
