ICRR: Quality Improvement Initiatives
At ICRR, we measure up!
Please note this aspect of the registry is completely voluntary, confidential and non-judgmental. Consider this an invitation by ICRR’s User sub-committee into a collaborative learning community! We look forward to dialogue and activity to augment CR quality with the ICRR community. We are also available to speak individually with sites about questions or concerns, and solicit ideas to support you as needed.
As one of the benefits of participating in ICRR, we have focused topics to support you in quality improvement activities, as per: https://globalcardiacrehab.com/resources/Documents/ICRR_QI%20plan_v1-2.pdf. We analyze ICRR data and invite input from the ICRR community to determine the topics.
Please find here a brief video with an overview of “What is Quality Improvement” for a CR audience by ICCPR’s AACVPR representative Anne Gavic-Ott, MPA, RCEP, MAACVPR: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stfcpqW91DM
