Objective: Following the notable work accomplished by the Mexican Association of Specialists in Congenital Heart Disease (Asociación Mexicana de Especialistas en Cardiopatías Congénitas) with the development of a national registry for congenital cardiac surgery, the World Society for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Surgery has implemented an international platform to collect data and analyze outcomes of children with congenital heart disease.
Methodology: This manuscript proposes a possible collaboration between Mexico's national congenital cardiac database (Registro Nacional de Cirugía Cardíaca Pediátrica) and the World Database for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Surgery.
Conclusion: Such a partnership would advance the countries' desire for the ongoing development of quality improvement processes and improve the overall treatment of children with congenital heart disease.
