The Australian and New Zealand Society of Cardiac and Thoracic Surgeons Database Program – Two Decades of Quality Assurance Data

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialOtherpeer-review

Abstract

Over two decades, the Australian and New Zealand Society of Cardiac and Thoracic Surgeons (ANZSCTS) cardiac surgery database program has evolved from a single state-based database to a national clinical quality registry program and is now the most comprehensive cardiac surgical registry in Australia. We report the current structure and governance of the program and its key activities.
