NICOR, the Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery (SCTS), and the University of Manchester, has released the SCTS Governance Tool. This new online rescource enables cardiac surgery consultants to access information about their clinical activity and outcomes, which facilitates effective monitoring of data quality and clinical practice. The tool allows selection of time periods and operative groups to generate downloadable reports ‘on demand’, which show analysis based on up-to-date, and 'cleaned', National Adult Cardiac Surgery Audit (NACSA) data.

Acute myocardial infarction: a comparison of short-term survival in national outcome registries in Sweden and the UK
The Myocardial Ischaemia National Audit Project (MINAP), from which the data for the Lancet paper was obtained, continues to collect detailed information about the care provided to patients with heart attack. This demonstrates the commitment of participating clinicians, Trusts and governments to improvements in quality of care. While important improvements have been made since 2010, the end of the period studied by the researchers, there is no room for complacency. We need to continue emphasising both the provision of the best modern care, and the recording of that care. We also need to shift from publishing details of the process of care to the outcomes of care. It is our intention to produce a preliminary report of outcomes for each hospital this year. More...

National Audit of Percutaneous Coronary Interventional Procedures
The National Audit of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) provides comparative data on the provision of PCI in the UK. The aim of the audit is to describe the quality and patterns of care, the process of care and outcomes for patients. Audit findings can be used by clinicians, healthcare professionals, cardiac networks and commissioners to support quality improvement.
The audit is clinically
led by The British Cardiovascular Intervention Society (BCIS) and managed by
NICOR. The audit is part of the National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcomes
Programme (NCAPOP), which is managed by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) and funded by NHS England.
Data Monitoring and Audit Group
The Data Monitoring and Audit Group is a working group of BCIS. They have an audit and research remit responsible for:
- reviewing and assessing the UK wide audit data
- reviewing applications to use the BCIS dataset for research
- assessing potential changes to the BCIS dataset
