Within the primary process Innovation, new registrations are developed and implemented. Also conceptual innovations are shaped by implementing new applications based on the data from the quality registration.
Within the primary process Scientific Research, studies are conducted and work is done on publications based on the data and/or methods as used within the primary processes Registration and Innovation.
Mandatory registrations are processed within the primary process Registration.
The Netherlands Heart Registration is a service-oriented quality and registration organisation where high-quality and complete registration of all cardiac interventions and cardiac operations in the Netherlands takes place. In addition, registrations are also designed for various, common syndromes.
It’s the mission of the NHR to serve the interests of the cardiac patient by promoting quality assurance and improvement in cardiac care in the Netherlands from an integrated, high-quality and innovative approach. Through this registration, the cardiac patient is followed through all phases of the treatment process, from the moment of diagnosis to years after intervention.
Three primary processes
The NHR has three primary processes: Registration, Scientific Research and Innovation, and works intensively with various parties, including the cardiac centres ofthe Dutch hostpitals, the scientic associations NVVC & NVT, the DCVA and the Dutch Heart Foundation.
Within the primary process Registration, registrations that have a mandatory character, or are developed to such an extent that there is a stable situation that needs to be maintained, are processed.
Within the primary process Scientific Research, applications for scientific research are assessed, scientific research is performed, and publications are written based on the data and/or methods used within the primary processes Registration and Innovation.
Within the primary process Innovation, new registrations are developed and implemented and conceptual or methodological innovations are shaped using the data available within the NHR.
