Why did NPF develop this registry?

The NPF recognized the need for a national patient registry and pioneered the NPR to support treatments and research dedicated to all pancreatic diseases. The NPR will serve as a valuable resource to better understand the natural history of pancreatic diseases, the effectiveness of current treatments, and the quality of life of patients affected by pancreatic conditions. It is the hopes of the NPF and the medical community that the NPR will lead to the improvement of treatments, quality of life, and quality of care for patients with pancreatic diseases.

How does the NPR work?

The NPR collects information from healthcare providers and patients through a secure web-based portal. With the patient’s permission, the healthcare providers securely submit patient information from the medical records to the NPR. Unlike other patient registries, the NPR also provides patients with pancreatic diseases the opportunity to report their personal disease experiences through its online Patient Portal. It empowers participants to become more proactive in their health care to help improve the quality of their lives. It puts patients in the driver’s seat and allows them to be in control of what information is entered because it’s from their personal experience and perspective.
