MINAP and National Heart Failure Audit Patient Reports
30 January 2013
Cardiac patients and their families are set to receive a major boost in information about heart conditions with the launch today of the two major patient-focused reports covering heart attack and heart failure care.
These are the first-ever patient versions of the annual MINAP (heart attack care) and National Heart Failure Audit reports and have been written in collaboration with patient representatives in an attempt to increase awareness of the audits, particularly in patients with cardiovascular disease and their families. It is hoped that this will empower patients and the public to question hospitals that fail to deliver high quality care, resulting in sub-optimal outcomes. Both audits have shown that patients who receive specialist cardiology care have better outcomes.
The reports condense the findings from the MINAP Annual Public Report 2011/12 and the National Heart Failure Audit 2011/12 Annual Report into shorter summaries and explain the purpose of the audits. Also included are straightforward explanations of the clinical concepts involved and these use everyday language than the Annual Reports.
The patient-friendly reports have been published MINAP and the National Heart Failure Audit are managed by NICOR (National Institute for Cardiovascular Outcomes Research), part of the Institute of Cardiovascular Science at UCL, and commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP).
