Europe needs reliable data on cardiovascular (CV) disease and the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) is the body which should provide such data. Registries are essential to assess CV epidemiology, diagnostic/therapeutic processes and adherence to Guidelines.
In 2000 the European Society of Cardiology started the Euro Heart Survey programme with the objective to assess adherence to Guidelines in Cardiology.In 2009 the EURObservational Research Programme (EORP) was launched. The aim of this programme of registries is to provide a better understanding of medical practice, based on observational data collected with more robust methodological procedures.
EORP Structure and Organisation
General to assess the management of diseases of major impact in terms of incidence. These registries will provide epidemiological data and provide reports on the application of clinical practice guidelines recommendations.
Sentinel to assess the impact of interventional procedures and imaging techniques.
Special to assess epidemiology and management of rarer conditions as arising critical issues in terms of public health (severity of the disease, stringent clinical needs, costs).
Prevention to assess cardiovascular risk factors epidemiology and prevention measures.

Results from completed EORP studies are published in the European Heart Journal as well as other major scientific reviews.
