Cardiac Procedures Registry

Aims of the Cardiac Procedures Registry

  • Collect and report on a standard set of clinically relevant information from all patients undergoing specific cardiac procedures and therapies within hospitals in Australia and New Zealand.
  • Provide uniform data collection of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI), pacing and device practice.
  • Provide information for comparison of clinical practice in Australia and potentially other countries.
  • Information to be reported back to hospitals and clinicians providing an auditing facility.


ACOR is an initiative of the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand (CSANZ) which recognises the critical value of a national clinical cardiovascular quality registry incorporating quality, safety and appropriateness outcomes.

The CSANZ formed ACOR with the purpose to supervise the development of national clinical quality cardiovascular registries. Although ACOR runs as a separate entity from the Society, ACOR acts in collaboration with CSANZ to draw on expert advice from the CSANZ to optimise clinician support and engagement.

ACOR has a Board of Directors responsible for legal compliance, financial responsibilities and the strategic direction of the registries. Each Registry has a Steering Committee comprised of senior clinicians in a leadership role with the relevant specialty group together with stakeholders such as the Heart Foundation, community and consumer representatives. The Steering Committee Chair is nominated by the ACOR Board.
