ASPIRE Alliance

American Heart Association's Scientific Program to Innovate the Research Experience

Current large-scale prospective research is conducted by a relatively small group of investigators, is limited to a relatively small proportion of patients, and is becoming exceedingly expensive. The ASPIRE Alliance is a collaborative research network built upon American Heart Association's suite of quality improvement registries. These rich data registries hold over 11 million unique patient encounters. Over 2000 hospitals and ambulatory clinics partner with the American Heart Association to improve evidence-based care for stroke, acute coronary syndromes, heart failure, or atrial fibrillation, and outpatient patient care outcomes.

Investigators are invited to collaborate with the AHA in clinical research by joining the ASPIRE Alliance. It's agile, efficient, and it will drive next-generation research in cardiovascular care.
