American College of Cardiology (ACC)

logo for American College of CardiologyIn 2006, the ACC has a very active and collaborative program in the development of performance measures for organizations and for physicians.

At its roots, the ACC has a long-standing partnership with the American Heart Association (AHA) in developing multiple authoritative ACC/AHA guidelines for cardiac care that provide evidence-based gold-standards for cardiac providers. In February 2000, the ACC and the AHA created the ACC/AHA Task Force on Performance Measures to spearhead the development of performance measures that are linked to the assessment and improvement in quality of cardiovascular care. The ACC National Cardiovascular Data Registry (ACC-NCDR®) also serves as a source for data supporting quality of care measures. This broad involvement ensures a a central and guiding role of cardiovascular specialists in defining and measuring quality of care

The ACC collaborated with the AMA's Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement and the American Heart Association (AHA) to develop physician-level cardiovascular performance measures to be used in an outpatient setting in the treatment of
