ACOR is an initiative of 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.
