Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation
Data Registry

The AACVPR Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation Registry is an unique and powerful tool for tracking patient outcomes and program performance in meeting evidence-based guidelines for secondary prevention of heart and vascular disease. It provides cardiac rehabilitation programs with national outcomes data for benchmarking and demonstrates the positive impact of cardiac rehabilitation on the morbidity, mortality, physical function, and quality of life of heart patients across the United States.

The Benefits of Registry Use

For general information about the benefits of the Cardiac Registry please view our Registry Brochure (PDF)Through the AACVPR Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation Registry, CR programs are able to create and manage patient profile, enter and view outcomes data on enrolled patients in real time, track and quantify progress of the CR program in meeting performance goals and produce individual and grouped outcomes reports.

By assisting in the collection, management, and interpretation of outcomes data, the registry will help CR programs:

  • Compare outcomes and processes to evidence-based goals and national benchmarks
  • Implement quality improvement projects based on real data
  • Enhance documentation and communication with the program’s key audiences, such as hospital administrators and referring physicians
  • Promote the role of CR in the management of chronic heart and vascular disease
  • Increase support from physicians
  • Improve 3rd-party payer coverage and reimbursement rates

    Influencing National Healthcare Practices

    Outpatient cardiac rehabilitation (CR) is not well utilized in standard heart care, despite being recognized as a standard of care by the American College of Cardiology (ACC), American Hospital Association (AHA), American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP), and AACVPR. As healthcare systems begin to emphasize chronic disease management, we have a valuable opportunity to demonstrate the value of CR.

    By tracking and providing comparative data for benchmarking of clinical, behavioral, health, and service outcomes, as well as tracking key program performance issues, the AACVPR Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation Registry will provide a solid base of scientific data to promote more widespread use of CR services for eligible heart patients.
