The Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR) registry is a research collaboration between the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) and the Medical College of Wisconsin. CIBMTR seeks to advance hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) and cellular therapy worldwide to increase survival, improve treatment, and enrich the quality of life for patients. Data is required to be entered for every allogeneic transplant performed in the United States. Autologous transplant data is submitted voluntarily. Data is then used for patient care decisions, research studies, and education. Data is collected via data collection forms as well as registry specific software and supported by forms instructions manuals.
Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology (COEMIG) is an accreditation program that is available to surgeons and facilities that provide both inpatient and outpatient minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. COEMIG uses an outcomes database to capture data that can drive improvement in surgical care and improve patient safety and satisfaction.
The Children’s Hospitals Neonatal Consortium (CHNC), formed in 2006, seeks to improve care for high-risk infants by providing a platform to compare quality and outcomes of care across Level IV neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) by sharing data, information, and ideas for benchmarking, research, and development of safety and quality initiatives. To accomplish this goal, the CHNC developed the Children’s Hospitals Neonatal Database (CHND) in 2010.
Get With The Guidelines® (GWTG) is a hospital-based quality improvement initiative created by the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American Stroke Association (ASA). The goal of this initiative is to improve the care of patients with cardiac diseases and stroke while supporting the AHA mission to reduce death and disability due to cardiovascular diseases and stroke. It is evidence-based and founded on the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Guidelines for secondary prevention of cardiovascular diseases and is designed to help health care providers consistently treat patients in accordance with these accepted guidelines.
The American College of Surgeons (ACS), in collaboration with the Johns Hopkins Medicine Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality, Baltimore, MD, launched the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Safety Program for Improving Surgical Care and Recovery (ISCR) in 2017.
The American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) combined their respective national bariatric surgery accreditation programs into a single unified program to achieve one national accreditation standard for bariatric surgery centers: the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP®).
The National Cardiovascular Data Registry (NCDR®) is the American College of Cardiology’s suite of cardiovascular data registries helping hospitals and private practices measure and improve the quality of care they provide.
The American College of Surgeon’s (ACS) National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) program allows participating facilities to collect preoperative risk factors, perioperative information, and report 30-day outcomes of their surgical patients. Participating facilities use a random sampling method to select surgical cases and collect a number of variables for each case that can vary depending on the procedure performed. Data for each case is entered into a secure, web-based data platform and facilities receive risk-adjusted summaries of their performance with benchmarking against hospitals nationwide. These risk-adjusted summaries allow facilities to focus quality improvement efforts on key areas to reduce postoperative complications, thereby reducing readmissions, reoperations, and associated costs.

The Pediatric Cardiac Critical Care Consortium’s (PC4) goal is to improve the quality of care to patients with critical congenital and pediatric cardiovascular disease. The collaboration includes leaders from cardiac critical care, cardiac surgery, and cardiology. The first step toward achieving this goal is the purposeful collection of specific clinical data on outcomes and practice. (more…)
Sepsis Core Measure is a requirement for hospitals accredited by The Joint Commission. This measure focuses on adults 18 years and older with a diagnosis of severe sepsis or septic shock. Consistent with Surviving Sepsis Campaign guidelines, the measure contains several elements, including measurement of lactate, obtaining blood cultures, administering broad spectrum antibiotics, fluid resuscitation, vasopressor administration, reassessment of volume status and tissue perfusion, and repeat lactate measurement. As reflected in the data elements and their definitions, these elements should be performed in the early management of severe sepsis and septic shock. (more…)
The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) National Database was established in 1989 as an initiative for quality improvement and patient safety among cardiothoracic surgeons. This database has participants in 11 countries including all 50 of the United States. The Adult Cardiac Database houses approximately 6.9 million patient records and represents more than 90% of the groups that perform cardiac surgery in the United States. (more…)
The Joint Commission Total Hip and Knee Replacement (THKR) Advanced Certification is an orthopedic certification available to facilities that are seeking to improve patient outcomes, establish consistency in approaches to orthopedic care that reduce risk of error, and promote collaboration of teams while demonstrating a commitment to excellent clinical service. Certification is open to both inpatient and outpatient facilities. (more…)
Registry Partners offers a comprehensive team of experienced trauma registrars. We support national, regional, and state data collection as well as the American College of Surgeons Trauma Quality Improvement Program (ACS TQIP®) data collection. Our team can: (more…)
The Vascular Quality Initiative’s (VQI) mission is to improve the quality, safety, effectiveness, and cost of vascular healthcare by collecting and exchanging information.
VQI’s registries contain demographic, clinical, procedural, and outcomes data from vascular procedures performed nationwide and in Canada. Each record includes information from the patient’s initial hospitalization and at one-year follow-up. This data allows centers and providers to compare their performance to both regional and national benchmarks in an effort to improve the delivery of vascular care, reducing complications and expenses. (more…)
The Vermont Oxford Network (VON) partnering hospitals are collaborating to improve neonatal care around the world with data-driven quality improvement, education, and research. VON serves to analyze and provide benchmarking data for individual centers and groups that can be used to identify local opportunities for improvement of neonatal care through four different databases: (more…)
The Virtual Pediatric Systems (VPS) Registry currently includes data from over 200 pediatric critical care hospital units and over 1.5 million patient admission records. The registry utilizes high-quality data management and comparative reports from its database to support clinical research and protocols, ultimately improving critical care quality and outcomes for all children and their families. This robust database is the largest collaborative for quality improvement based on severity-of-illness adjusted comparisons of detailed patient records in pediatric critical care. (more…)
