Data linkage with the Victorian Admitted Episodes Dataset (VAED) and the Victorian Cardiac Outcomes Registry (VCOR) and the Australian and New Zealand Society of Cardiac and Thoracic Surgeons (ANZSCTS) database.

Project: Research

Project Description

The aim of this project is to further enhance the utility of the cardiac registry data. Currently, both the cardiac interventional (coronary stent, heart attack and heart failure) registry and the cardiac surgery registry only collect outcomes to 30 days post procedure or event. Agreement with the Victorian department of health has been signed whereby admitted episodes data will be supplied for linkage with the cardiac registries. This will allow for assessment of readmissions and health service encounters and provide valuable information as to the outcomes of patients entered into the registries beyond the current 30 day follow-up currently undertaken.
