Version 3 (2012)
The current dataset (version 3.0), which came into effect on 26 March 2012, contains 59 core items, 46 of which are mandatory (i.e. the record will not be saved without them). The additional fields allow us to measure the implementation of NICE Clinical Guidelines and quality standards for the diagnosis and treatment of chronic heart failure. The new dataset will also allow us to risk adjust the data, so that we can begin to report on the performance of individual hospitals.
The extended dataset has 242 items, and captures additional demographic and clinical data, as well as outpatient data. This is optional and for local use only.

Version 4 (2014)
A new dataset, v4.2 will come into effect on 1 April 2014. All records for patients discharged from 1 April 2014 onwards should use v4.2 of the dataset. All records for patients discharged up to 31 March 2014 should use v3.0. The data collection period for 2013/14 ends on 2 June 2014, so there will be a two-month cross-over period where both datasets run in parallel.
