​Research is one out of four tasks dedicated to specialist health care in Norway – along with education of health care professionals, treatment and care of patients, as well as patient education.

"Patient-Reported Outcomes in CARDiology (PROCARD) and QUALity of care in CARDiology (QUALCARD)" is a research group at the Department of Heart Disease, at Haukeland University Hospital. The project portfolio has been built during a ten-year period, and was initiated due to a strong interest in research on patient-reported outcomes and improvement of patient care. PROCARD's main goal is to let the voices of the patients be heard. Patient-reported data are combined with clinical end points. Quality of care is pivotal, and is the main focus of QUALCARD. However, several projects are built into both PROCARD and QUALCARD.
