Hjerte-karregisteret (The Cardio-Vascular Register)
In March of 2010, the Norwegian Parliament decided to establish a national register of cardio-vascular illnesses, the Cardio-Vascular Register. The purpose of the register is to increase knowledge about the incidence and treatment of cardio-vascular illness in the population. Such knowledge can provide a better basis for quality control and management of the health service, and for research into the causes of cardio-vascular illness.
