  • Access program and patient data reports instantly, and benchmark your results against national averages.
  • Implement quality improvement projects based on real data, and enhance documentation for administrators and referring physicians.

Overview & Benefits of the Pulmonary Registry

For general information about the benefits of the Pulmonary Registry please view our Registry Brochure (PDF).

Through the AACVPR Outpatient Pulmonary Rehabilitation Registry, PR programs are able to create and manage patient profiles, enter and view outcomes data on enrolled patients in real time, track and quantify progress of the PR 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 PR 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 PR in the management of chronic heart and vascular disease
  • Increase support from physicians
  • Improve 3rd-party payer coverage and reimbursement rates
