PERT Consortium Quality Database Reaches 4,000-Patient Milestone
October 20, 2020—The PERT Consortium of pulmonary embolism (PE) response teams announced that its quality database has recorded more than 4,000 unique patients at sites across the United States that are entering data into the registry.
According to the PERT Consortium, the prospective, multicenter quality registry is recording outcomes on all patients with PE who were assessed, triaged, and managed by team-based care across the United States.
Initiated in 2019 in partnership with the Boston Clinical Research Institute, the registry allows for real-time assessment of outcomes for patients with acute PE. Each participating site receives quarterly feedback in the form of a quality dashboard to review the outcomes for their patients and compare their outcomes with the rest of the nation.
The PERT Consortium advised that a preliminary report on the current findings from the first 3,500 patients in the database will be presented on Saturday, October 24, from 10:00 to 11:00 AM (ET) at the 6th Annual Pulmonary Embolism Symposium: A Virtual Event held on October 23-24.
