Coronary Artery Disease

The ICHOM Standard Set for Coronary Artery Disease was published in Journal of the American Heart Association.


The ICHOM Standard Set for Coronary Artery Disease is the result of hard work by a group of leading physicians, measurement experts and patients. It is our recommendation of the outcomes that matter most to patients with coronary artery disease. We urge all providers around the world to start measuring these outcomes to better understand how to improve the lives of their patients.
