Cardiovascular disease (CVD) - also known as heart and circulatory disease - is the biggest killer in the UK. It includes conditions such as coronary heart disease (angina and heart attack) and stroke.
Cardiovascular disease is estimated to cost the UK economy £30.7 billion a year.
Did you know NHS Health Check Module actually identifies candidates for CVD risk assessment, undertakes risk stratification, invites patients into a structured “industrial-scale” programme of care and works hand-in-hand with General Practice? For more information please see NHS Health Check.
Health Intelligence’s CVD Dashboard reports on:
- Patients with established CVD or related condition – presents the prevalence and incidence of patients with CVD and related conditions. This includes:
- Chronic Kidney Disease stage 5
- Heart Failure
- Patients “likely to have” CVD – This set of reports identifies patients whose data suggests that they may have CVD but a diagnosis has not been recorded on the practice's clinical system.
- Patients at risk of developing CVD – Counts up the number of CVD risk factors within a patient record and profiles accordingly. In addition the dashboard produces provisional risk scores for patients using either Framingham, JBS2 or QRISK2 algorithms. For more information on CVD Primary Prevention please see our NHS Health Check literature pack.
- Optimal Management Index – It is clear from NICE and NSF guidance what elements of care a patient with CVD should be receiving. Health Intelligence's Optimal Management Index counts up the number of elements of care each CVD patient is receiving. A report is then produced which highlights the patients with the most gaps in their care. These are the patients that if not managed correctly are likely to have an emergency hospital admission.
- Health Inequalities – BMI, Ethnic Group, Exercise etc.
- Acute and Community Activity – Profiles all CVD related admissions
