    Take advantage of the NCDR Physician Dashboard to obtain personal data through the CathPCI Registry, available via Cardiosource.

    • Access collated data for each physician (even if you work at multiple hospitals) regarding procedural volume, quality metrics such as D2B times, outcome metrics, AUC metrics, and much more!
    • Obtain confidential individual comparison to CathPCI Registry physicians as a whole. These data are NOT in the public domain.
    • Review your data at least quarterly. Erroneous data on NCDR can be amended before it is locked, which occurs at 30 days after each quarter ends.
    • Use the data to improve performance at individual, team, and hospital level.  You can even use it for MOC part IV performance improvement module!

    On March 21, 2014, Dr. H.V. “Skip” Anderson presented the SCAI-QIT webinar “CathPCI Registry Tools that Work.” This thorough overview highlights you many of the powerful new tools that are available so that quality in your cath lab is under your control.
