This Wednesday, September 29 we help raise awareness of cardiovascular disease (CVD) by celebrating #WorldHeartDay.
Did you know that heart disease and stroke are the world’s leading causes of death, claiming 18.6 million lives each year? Some of the biggest risk factors for heart disease and stroke are high cholesterol, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Treating these conditions can help reduce the risk of CVD. Premature deaths from heart disease and stroke could potentially be avoided by leveraging data to analyze the treatment of such conditions. Collecting and analyzing data in cardiovascular data registries is one way for health care institutions to measure and improve the quality of care they provide relating to CVD. Feedback in the form of metrics and reports help to show areas in which health care providers can improve care practice and outcomes, giving their community the best possible CVD survival rates.
Our Registry Partners team can assist with integrating your heart-healthy data into practice on a multitude of levels. For more information contact Leah Bassham, our Client Services Representative for our Cardiac service line.
