Pulmonary Hypertension Association Registry (PHAR)


The PHAR is a multicenter, prospective registry of newly evaluated patients at PHCCs in the United States who have either PAH or CTEPH. The goals of the PHAR include 1) measuring and improving quality of care (including assessing differences in adherence to evidence-based guidelines and establishing benchmarks for health outcomes), 2) determining the clinical effectiveness, comparative effectiveness, and cost effectiveness of treatment approaches, 3) understanding risk factors for outcomes and regional/center differences, and 4) facilitating funded clinical trials of new therapies and collaboration with the PAH community at large, including providers, patients, and their caregivers.
