American College of Cardiology, Society for Vascular Surgery teaming up to create single vascular registry

Posted on

The American College of Cardiology (ACC) and Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) announced a collaboration in order to create a single vascular registry to improve outcomes for patients with vascular disease.

Beginning in January 2021, the ACC’s National Cardiovascular Data Registry will work with the Society’s Vascular Quality Initiative (VQI) on a single registry, operated by SVS. A co-branded VQI program will provide resources for improving the care of patients with vascular diseases. 

“The combined strengths of ACC and SVS will provide a clear choice for clinicians, researchers, industry and the Food and Drug Administration when looking for data on the management of vascular diseases,” said Fred Masoudi, MD, MPH, FACC, ACC NCDR Management Board chair and chief scientific advisor, in a press release.

The registry will evaluate new technologies, therapies, and medical and lifestyle management.
