Steering Committee Message

From the 2020 Steering Committee

Since our inception in 2009, the Texas Region Data Managers Network has strived to provide educational networking opportunities for abstractors and administrators working in cardiovascular registries throughout Texas and Oklahoma. That first grass roots effort with our founding group has since grown into a network committed to accuracy, quality, and data driven improvements in cardiac care.  Over the years we have realized several successes to include:

  • A statewide conference call, with robust participation, shortly after our regional group was formed.
  • Regular and robust annual meetings that rotate venues throughout the state of Texas.
  • Development and launching of STS Adult Cardiac web-based training modules available to anyone free of charge.
  • Website launch.

Along the way, our TRDMN board has sought to be inclusive, creative and innovative. We welcome all comers from any part of the country to participate, and currently have expanded our annual meeting to a three day event that devotes time to both PCI and STS Adult Cardiac materials. Plans are to increase meeting content to include other registry material such as Thoracic, Trans-catheter, and Congenital.  We are very excited for our TRDMN website and hope it meets the needs for our participants, both present and future.  Please provide feedback on how the website can be improved to better meet your needs.

Registries are fluid, ever changing and updating.  Networking and participating in a Regional Group are great ways to stay in the loop, exchange information, and share ideas and best practice.  Plus, we enjoy each other company and have a lot of fun! Come join us!
