Heart surgery iData application launched

Publication date: Nov 20, 2013 2:46:23 PM

Acting as a 'window' into National Adult Cardiac Surgery Audit (NACSA) data, the SCTS iData app allows users to place filters on different types of heart surgery to generate a report showing analysis of all heart operations in the UK between April 2008 – March 2012. Reports provide a running total of procedures as you add each filter, with the option to generate a report at any time.

Reports show users averages of:

  • In-hospital mortality
  • 1 Year mortality
  • EuroSCORE
  • EuroSCORE II
  • Post-operative length of stay

The SCTS iData app is available for free in two formats:

  • Web application accessible via www.idata.scts.org (N.B. if using Internet Explorer this application does not work with version 9 or earlier)
  • Apple iOS application, which can be downloaded by searching 'SCTS iData' in the Apple App Store.
