Veradigm offers two clinical data registries operated in association with the American College of Cardiology (ACC). The registries provide a longitudinal view of the presentation, progression, management and outcomes of patients with cardiovascular disease and diabetes as they receive care and treatment from multidisciplinary care teams.
The PINNACLE Registry® is cardiology’s largest outpatient quality improvement registry, capturing data on coronary artery disease, hypertension, heart failure and atrial fibrillation.
The Diabetes Collaborative Registry® is the first clinical ambulatory registry aimed at tracking and improving the quality of diabetes and cardiometabolic care across the primary and specialty care continuum. This interdisciplinary effort is led by Veradigm and the American College of Cardiology in partnership with the American Diabetes Association, the American College of Physicians, the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists and the Joslin Diabetes Center.
Both registries are currently enrolling practices across multiple specialties, specifically primary care, family care, internal medicine, endocrinology and cardiology.
Veradigm has partnered with the American College of Cardiology (ACC) to advance the next generation of real-world research on behalf of cardiovascular disease and diabetes patients around the world. As part of this partnership, Veradigm operates the PINNACLE Registry and the Diabetes Collaborative Registry.

The data included in the PINNACLE Registry and the Diabetes Collaborative Registry are collected from cardiologists, primary care physicians, endocrinologists, and other providers to provide an overview of patients with cardiovascular and/or cardiometabolic disease. This data is a valuable resource for longitudinal studies which can reveal new insights, enable better treatment and improve outcomes. Registry participants can access easy-to-interpret benchmark reports to facilitate coordinated care, prevention and treatment of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. By drilling down to the patient level metrics, clinicians can easily identify opportunities for improvement.
Please note, that you do not need to be a member of the ACC to participate. To access ACC tools, register for a free account at https://cvquality.acc.org/Register.

The PINNACLE Registry and the Diabetes Collaborative Registry “Practice Executive Summary Quality Reports” allow practices to validate the quality of care provided, benchmark performance on a national and practice level, and identify opportunities to close gaps in care. To generate these reports, data for all relevant patient encounters must be collected and submitted via the data collection process.
Electronic data submission is required for registry participation. Data collection for the PINNACLE Registry and the Diabetes Collaborative Registry is managed via an arrangement with our technology partner FIGmd. Relevant registry data elements are captured through one of two secure HIPAA-compliant data collection methods.
Details on data collected for the Registries can be viewed on the PINNACLE Data Collection Form or the Diabetes Collaborative Registry Data Collection Form. Please note these forms are for illustration only – participants are not required to fill them out.
