The most common ways of assessment of cardiovascular diseases treatment abroad, approaches to creation of such assessment methods are considered, as well as data on the principles of the assessment of treatment in Russia. Some foreign registers of acute myocardial infarction, the aim of which was therapy quality assessment, are given as examples. The problem of high-quality treatment based on data from evidence-based medicine, some legal aspects related to clinical guidelines in Russia are considered, as well as various ways of treatment quality assessment.
