We are pleased to announce that the SCTS iData web application, designed to support shared decision making, is now available to use at Acting as a ‘window’ into National Adult Cardiac Surgery Audit (NACSA) data, the iData app allows users to place filters on CABG, AVR and MV data to gain access to a report showing aggregated analysis of every patient receiving heart surgery 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 Instructions · You must select an operation type (CABG, AVR or MV) on the first screen and an operation type on the second screen before applying any further filters or generating a report · Each additional variable selected will reduce the sample size on which the resultant report is based. Clinical judgement must be used to keep sample sizes as large as possible, and caution exerted when viewing results based on small samples · For Internet Explorer Users: the app only works on versions of Internet Explorer supported by Microsoft (i.e. IE10) The application will soon be available to download onto iOS devices for free from the Apple store. You can view a demo of the iOS app on YouTube here. Queries and feedback should be directed to NACSA Project Manager, Rebecca Cosgriff ( We hope that you find the iData application useful; the latest in a series of outputs from the National Adult Cardiac Surgery Audit including: · – Hospital and national level activity, trends and data quality · - Hospital and consultant level activity and in-hospital risk adjusted mortality · - what patients can expect from their heart surgeons
