The PERT Consortium™ is pleased to announce the creation of PE Centers of Excellence™. Our mission is to create and disseminate a universal standard of care for the acute and long-term management of patients with pulmonary embolism. This will be the first and only governing body for certifying competence and quality care in pulmonary embolism. The PE Centers of Excellence™ will be a collaborative network of institutions with the fundamental goals of improving patient outcomes and safety, promoting and rapidly disseminating recent advances in technology, expanding the world’s largest quality PE database, and using data-driven metrics to more quickly refine PE care. As the innovators behind the concept of the Pulmonary Embolism Response Team (PERT), The PERT Consortium™ is now the largest scientific organization in the world dedicated to the advancement of PE care.
Becoming a PE Center of Excellence™ provides value through the standardization of care, requirements for competence assessment, real-time access to a database dashboard for safety and outcomes metrics, and unparalleled collaboration and networking through members of The PERT Consortium™. We intend to offer two tiers of participation: PE Regional Care Centers and PE Comprehensive Care Centers. Each tier will be differentiated primarily by research infrastructure and access to mechanical circulatory support and surgical expertise.
Experts from The PERT Consortium™ are currently refining the PE Center of Excellence™ certification process. Please look for updates on the PE Centers of Excellence program at The PERT Consortium™ 8th Annual Scientific Symposium in Tampa from September 29 through October 1st, 2022.
We will begin accepting applications in the Fall of 2022. Institutions with Pulmonary Embolism Response Teams may submit a declaration of interest in the link below.
