Cardio Registry

Welcome to SwissCaRe, the Swiss registry for coronary angiography and angioplasty (heart catheter treatments)

Coronary angioplasty (expansion/restoration of constricted coronary arteries) and associated coronary angiography imaging are by far the most common invasive cardiovascular procedures.

The national quality registry SwissCaRe (Swiss Cardiology Registry) aims to record all Swiss heart catheter treatments. In addition to data on the treatment itself, information on the indication for treatment and post-treatment medication is also collected. Since the data collected are personal health data of patients, the consent of each individual patient is required for the collection of the data. By collecting this information, SwissCaRe creates the basis for evaluation and long-term improvement of the quality of treatment and care within Switzerland.

SwissCaRe was launched in 2022 by the Swiss Society of Cardiology (SSC) and its Working Group on Interventional Cardiology to meet the increasing demands for medical quality assurance and improvement from the medical profession, authorities and society. The SSC is the professional association of Swiss cardiologists and a scientific association according to Art. 60 ff. of the Swiss Civil Code. SwissCaRe is managed by SwissRDL on behalf of the SSC. SwissRDL is a service provider of the Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine of the University of Bern, which has great experience in managing medical registries.

The SwissCaRe consent paragraph is now also included in the updated "Informed Consent for CA & PCI" by the Swiss Heart Foundation.

The user manual provides you with information on user administration, recording patients and treatments, and more.
