Sophia Antipolis, 3 July 2015. Oxford University Press (OUP) and the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) are delighted to announce the launch of European Heart Journal - Quality of Care and Clinical Outcomes (EHJQCCO), whose first issue published on the 2nd July. 

EHJQCCO is the eleventh ESC journal, which focuses on the quality of care affecting cardiovascular outcomes at hospital, regional, national, and international level.

This exciting new addition to the ESC journals portfolio will showcase the best cardiovascular outcomes research to inform cardiovascular public health policy globally. In addition it aims to encourage young investigators and support growth of the outcomes research community.
Editor-in-Chief, Professor Adam Timmis, commented that the “European Heart Journal - Quality of Care and Clinical Outcomes speaks to the heart of what matters to patients.

As the field develops it must be the patient’s voice that we listen to in developing our research programmes. This will require more attention to patient related outcome measures and a focus on research to enhance the quality of life, not prolong the process of dying.”
The journal will publish four issues a year.
