Abstract

The Pediatric Cardiac Care Consortium (PCCC) was developed to provide individual institutions feedback about outcomes of common surgical and catheter based procedures and allow comparison of these outcomes on an international scale. The PCCC successfully accomplished this mission for over 30 years. The data was accurate, and provided to the individual centers on an annual basis. Recently, the database has elected to stop collecting information from the member institutions. As before, leaders within this organization have had to evolve the mission and find applications for the rich data that currently exists within the database. This chapter describes the history, current status, and future of the PCCC.
