American College of Cardiology Analytic Center
Since 2007, Yale CORE has served as a data analytic center (DAC) for the ICD RegistryTM and the CathPCI Registry® of the American College of Cardiology Foundation’s National Cardiovascular Data Registry (NCDR®). More recently, NCDR's ACTION Registry®, LAAO RegistryTM and Afib Ablation RegistryTM were added to the stable of Yale CORE NCDR registries. 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, ACTION Registry®, LAAO RegistryTM and Afib Ablation RegistryTM.
As of January 2016, 72 studies of the ICD RegistryTM have been conducted, resulting in 54 published (or in press) articles and 62 abstracts presented at professional meetings. For the CathPCI Registry®, 32 studies have been supported by Yale CORE analysis, resulting in the publication of 19 papers and the presentation of 30 abstracts at conferences. Work on the ACTION Registry® has resulted in 1 published article and 2 presented abstracts.
