National Cardiac Registry (NCR) Module 

Early Feb, a request letter for SOLVE-CHD to establish a CRSP module within NCR was sent, Julie was invited to the NCR Steering Committee meeting (19th Feb) to present this initiative. It was a great meeting, they showed genuine interest in the initiative, and it has gone to their management committee for further discussion. We are currently waiting for NCR to get back to us for the next step and will keep you all posted with the progress.
