The Veterans Affairs continuous improvement in cardiac surgery study.
National symposium on using outcomes data to improve clinical practice : building on models from cardiac surgery. Keystone CO USA, 1994/06/06.
The Department of Veterans Affairs Cardiac Surgery Consultants Committee is responsible for reviewing the quality of cardiac surgical treatment at the 43 Veterans Affairs cardiac surgical centers where these procedures are performed.
It does so by reviewing both the unadjusted and rislc-adjusted operative mortality data and the incidence of perioperative complications.
These data are reviewed by the committee semiannually, and the overall summary and hospital-specific data are shared with the individual cardiac surgical program directors.
Paper audits and site visits are performed when indicated by increased unadjusted and risk-adjusted operative mortality.
Constructive criticism is shared with the program director and medical center administration.
