CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Veradigm™, an Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX), business unit dedicated to simplifying healthcare with data driven health insights and technologies to help manage costs and improve health outcomes, announced today that it has partnered with the American College of Cardiology (ACC) to power the next generation of real-world research on behalf of cardiovascular disease and diabetes patients around the world. As part of this partnership, Veradigm will operate the PINNACLE Registry®, which focuses on coronary artery disease, hypertension, heart failure, atrial fibrillation and diabetes in the outpatient setting, and the Diabetes Collaborative Registry, the first global, cross-specialty clinical registry designed to track and improve the quality of diabetes and metabolic care across the primary care and specialty care continuum from the American College of Cardiology.
