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.
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.
Mandatory registrations are processed within the primary process Registration.
The Netherlands Heart Registration (NHR) is a service-oriented quality registry. By gathering complete and high-quality data of all cardiac interventions performed in the Netherlands, it aims to monitor and improve cardiac care. In addition to intervention registries, registries are also designed for various common cardiac 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 through an integrated, high-quality and innovative approach. Within the registraties, the cardiac patiënt is followed through all phases of the treatment process, from the moment of diagnosis to years after intervention.
Three primary processes
Registration, Scientific Research and Innovation are the three primary processes of the NHR. The NHR works in collaboration with various parties, including all Dutch hospitals, the scientic associations (NVVC & NVT), the DCVA and the Dutch Heart Foundation.
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 Registration.
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.
Within the primary process Scientific Research applications for scientific research are assessed, scientific research is conducted, and publications are written based on the data collected or methods used within the primary processes Registration and Innovation.
