Canadian Cardiac Rehabilitation Regsitry
- Improving treatment and outcomes
- Real-time management of patients
- Data analysis
- Accepts data from multiple sources
The underlying vision of the Canadian Cardiac Rehab Registry by CACR is the optimization of the health of patients with cardiovascular disease by uptake and adherence to evidence-based guidelines through the development of a national web-based surveillance system. Short-term goals are focused on patient care and improving treatment and outcomes through interactive reporting. Long-term goals include tracking and real-time management of patients across disciplines and geographic regions, improving adherence to CR service benchmarks (such as waitlist management), and collaboration with other Registries such as Stroke and Heart Failure Networks.
The uniqueness of the Cardiac Rehab Registry is its ability to identify participants within cardiac rehab programs who are not meeting risk factor targets and by cross-referencing to CACR’s Guidelines, a CR program will be able to affect an individual’s treatment while they are in a cardiac rehab program.
The CCRR will provide aggregate data/information to CR programs even for those who may not currently have a clinical management system. The Cardiac Rehab Registry has been built to accept data from a variety of sources that will ensure that there is no duplication of effort at the program level and a minimum level of useable information/reports are provided on a regular basis.
