The Quality Improvement Programme (QUIP)
What is the Quality Improvement Programme?
EACTS has established a Quality Improvement Programme (QUIP) to encourage improvement of clinical outcomes for patients and to promote the importance of integrating quality improvement initiatives in to daily clinical practice.
The Quality Improvement Programme operates two international databases, the Adult Cardiac Database (ACD) and EUROMACS – the European Registry for Patients with Mechanical Circulatory Support.
EACTS encourages members to get involved with the Quality Improvement Programme, as your support will lead to more quality improvement projects and will increase the difference we can make to our patients.
See more about the Adult Cardiac Database and EUROMACS below. Please note the ACD is temporarily closed as the team is performing upgrades to the system. EACTS will announce the date it is due to go back live!
Adult Cardiac Database
The EACTS Adult Cardiac Database is a collaborative registry of cardiac surgical data from centres across Europe. Hospitals contributing to this database can access the registry and use its bespoke benchmarking features. The ACD is temporarily closed due to upgrades to the system. EACTS will announce the launch date of the live database.
