Our hearts and thoughts go out to all the medical professionals who are working through personal hardship and risk to care for the people of our state.
Please know that all of our programs continue to operate and provide full, uninterrupted support to you, our members and partners. We know that the attention of many of you is focused on urgent matters related to this healthcare crisis and we will continue to support you in any way we can. One of the ways we are supporting our healthcare community is by hosting the Washington Healthcare Forum COVID-19 Work Groups.

COAP is here to help cardiac patients and the people who care for them.
Hospitals and clinicians committed to improving patient care will find a collaborative partner and community in COAP. We are a non-profit physician-led organization in the Pacific Northwest that lets providers know how they’re doing as compared to peers across the region, and provides a safe forum for discussing challenges in cardiac care.
COAP collects clinical data to develop local knowledge. We understand our patient population and identify local expertise and promising practices to share across the region.
Washington State hospitals that perform percutaneous cardiac intervention (PCI) and/or adult cardiac surgery participate in COAP, plus a few sites outside the state. COAP is a Certified Quality Improvement Program (CQIP) under Washington State law.
Congratulations to the recipients of COAP’s 2019 Performance Recognition Awards!
As a demonstrated commitment to improving cardiac care and patient outcomes, all COAP member hospitals have agreed to the public reporting of hospital level data. The COAP Management Committee identifies and tracks key metrics that serve as indicators of quality care. These metrics are reported on our site’s public portal.
COAP works due to the passionate commitment of health care providers across the region. If you would like to help shape the direction of cardiac care and quality improvement in the region, please contact us today.
