Introduction ― Among the causes of mortality in Russia, as in most developed countries, the first position is occupied by the cardiovascular diseases (CVD). It may be caused by different reasons, including an insufficient quality of healthcare. Methods ― The Russian Registry of Hypertension, Coronary Artery Disease, and Chronic Heart Failure (RusR-Htn-CAD-CHF) is a retrospective, continuous, nationwide, web-based registry of patients with the following chronic CVD: hypertension (Htn), coronary artery disease (CAD) and chronic heart failure (CHF). Participation in the RusR-Htn-CAD-CHF is voluntary. Any health facilities that provide primary healthcare to patients with one or several of the evaluated chronic CVD (Htn, CAD, and CHF) can take part in the RusR-Htn-CAD-CHF. The RusR-Htn-CAD-CHF enrolls patients who underwent care in Russian health facilities from January 2013 to the present day. Key data elements and methods of data analysis in the RusR-Htn-CAD-CHF are presented in this paper. Results ― Up to 2016, 69 healthcare units (from small rural clinics to large regional dispensaries) from 18 regions of Russia participated in the RusR-Htn-CAD-CHF. Currently, the database contains data on more than 41,000 patients with one or several chronic CVD (Htn, CAD, and CHF) who were followed-up from 2013 to current day. However, the contribution of regions to data collection of the RusR-Htn-CAD-CHF is nonuniform. In database, the major part of participants (88.7%) is from the Ivanovo region. Current statement of promotion of RusR-Htn-CAD-CHF, some problems, and first advances are considered in the present paper. Conclusion ― The RusR-Htn-CAD-CHF is a novel project for the Russian healthcare. It has good prospects for the assessment of healthcare quality in Russian patients with Htn, CAD, and CHF.
