The International Medical Prevention Registry on Venous Thromboembolism (IMPROVE) is a prospective cohort study of physician practices in the provision of prophylaxis against venous thromboembolism (VTE) in hospitalized medical patients. Key endpoints include type and duration of prophylaxis, as well as death, clinically apparent VTE, and bleeding within 3 months following hospital discharge. This registry currently includes hospitals in 11 countries. IMPROVE is sponsored by a grant from Sanofi to the Center for Outcomes Research (COR), based at the University of Massachusetts Medical School located in Worcester, Massachusetts. This collection showcases publications about the IMPROVE project and project research.
