Abstract

There is an important opportunity for improvement in the care of cardiology outpatients by having greater compliance with published guidelines, and the PINNACLE (Practice Innovation and Clinical Excellence) Registry seeks to do that. One of the major areas studied by this registry is the use of secondary prevention medications for patients with coronary artery disease. Appropriate use of these medications decreases later myocardial infarctions and death from a cardiac cause.
