Data is collected and submitted by centres using a minimum dataset of 40 fields and through the online Lotus Domino version of the central cardiac audit database (CCAD). To ensure patient confidentiality the CCAD uses advanced data encryption technology to control access to data through a secure key system.
Data collected by each hospital is entered into the central database from a local client computer, either using a Central Cardiac Audit Database (CCAD) supplied user interface, or where another cardiac clinical software system is used in the hospital, as a file in a CCAD defined format, exported from that system. Updates to the central database take place over NHSnet or the Internet. All hospitals are encouraged to submit data on a regular basis. The Adult Cardiac Surgery Tripartite Oversight Group is responsible for encouraging use of the service with participating organisations.
