Registry Subscriptions

AACVPR Outpatient Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation Data Registries
Through the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR) outpatient data registries, you can track patient outcomes and program performance while building an evidence base for the effectiveness of cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation.

Join a Registry

Step 1: Identify a Principal User

The Principal User is the main contact between AACVPR and the program. This individual is in charge of coordinating subscription payments, controlling which staff members can enter data, and ensuring a program's subscription(s) stay active.

Step 3: Review Our Participation Agreement

All programs wishing to join a registry must complete a required Participation Agreement contract in order to gain access to the registry. (Note: If your program wishes to join the Cardiac & Pulmonary registries, your program will need to fill both the Cardiac Participation Agreement & the Pulmonary Participation Agreement).

Requesting Changes:
Programs may request changes to the current participation agreement. Prior to requesting changes, please download our Legal FAQs document. Please note that it may take several months for your questions and changes to be processed through our legal counsel. You must wait until both legal counsels have come to an agreement on all requested changes before moving onto steps 4-5.

To submit your changes, please download a Word version of the agreement (below) and use the “track changes” function to clearly indicate the sections you would like edited. When ready, please send the document to registry@aacvpr.org for review.

Step 4: Signing the Participation Agreement

Please make sure you DO NOT have any requested changes to our Participation Agreement before reading this section. See the above section if you do have changes.

Before filling out the Participation Agreement(s) please read the below rules:

  • If you aren't sure who can sign contract(s) for your program, please verify the appropriate individual with legal authority to sign contracts.
  • Completing the Participation Agreement(s) via docusign is ONLY for the individual signing on behalf of the program using the registry (This means the signer will need to know the name of the Registry Principal User, program address, and program name).
  • The individual using docusign should be the person who's eSignature will go onto our Cardiac Participation Agreement and/or our Pulmonary Participation Agreement. If you don't have legal authority to sign DO NOT email registry@aacvpr.org. Instead, have the individual with legal authority to sign contacts email regstry@aacvpr.org.

  • Please email our Registry team with the below information.
