Device-specific and condition-specific registries have historically played an important role in generating clinical evidence on safety and effectiveness by collecting, curating, and analyzing data on medical technologies. Professional societies, patient foundations, device manufacturers, and health systems develop registries for a variety of purposes, including clinical research, safety surveillance, quality measurement, and benchmarking. Evidence from registries such as the National Cardiovascular Data Registry has increasingly been used to support regulatory approvals by the US Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health. More recently, active surveillance tools have been deployed in registries to detect safety signals.1
