The Atlantic C-PORT is a network of physician and nurse cardiovascular specialists, health care economists, quality of life researchers, clinical trial specialists, hospital administrators, and government health care policymakers and regulators.

The Atlantic C-PORT designs, develops and implements community-based, clinical trials in the area of cardiovascular medicine. 

C-PORT trials are characterized by

The C-PORT has a decentralized structure. Participants can propose and run clinical trials from any of the affiliated institutions, including and using C-PORT components appropriate for their needs.

C-PORT Trials

The Atlantic C-PORT conducts clinical cardiovascular trials involving new treatments or diagnostic methods; studies must be of significant intellectual interest. Study outcomes must lead to significant new treatments or new diagnostic tools important in cardiac care. Comprehensive comparisons of alternative "standard" treatments are of interest to the C-PORT when outcomes of such a comparison have important implications for the treatment of heart disease or development of public policy.
