Research Subcommittee, Scott Yeager, MD – chairperson
The theme of the annual meeting in 2012 was Adult Congenital Heart Disease and Transition. A NECCA needs assessment survey was performed across the region and spearheaded by Dr. Felice Heller. Please see the results of this survey.
Update on NECCA Transition Initiatives 2014
The Research Subcommittee settled on the creation of several, short clinical scenarios to be circulated to the active and potential NECCA membership. The intent is to document current clinical practice, test utilization, follow-up schedules and management recommendations. This simple project will allow NECCA to demonstrate the ability to gather regional clinical data, and should be useful historical information when evaluating clinical guidelines and in discussions with insurers.
See the complete results of the 3 clinical scenarios that were circulated throughout 2011:
