1 Why “VPS Cardiac” is Different
Howard Jeffries MD/MBA Medical Director, Accountable Care - Seattle Children’s Hospital Jennifer Daufeldt RN VPS Cardiac Program Coordinator/Quality Analyst


3 Nomenclature & Procedure Code Origin
Terms mapped to short list of the International Paediatric and Congenital Cardiac Code (IPCCC) utilized by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) Detailed and accepted procedural, diagnostic, and complication terms Identification of Index Procedure (assignment of case complexity): Risk Adjustment in Congenital Heart Surgery-1 (RACHS-1) Aristotle Basic Complexity Score

4 Current VPS Cardiac Units
Seattle Children's Hospital Seattle WA Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Milwaukee WI Nationwide Children's Hospital Columbus OH Children's Hospital Los Angeles Los Angeles CA Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota Minneapolis MN Children‘s Healthcare of Atlanta – Egleston Atlanta GA UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital San Francisco CA Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children Wilmington DE Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children Orlando FL Walt Disney Pavilion at Florida Hospital for Children Orlando FL

5 Current VPS Mixed Units
VPS Mixed Units are PICUs with a Cardiac Program Currently 47 VPS Mixed Units Participating in VPS Option to Participate in Separate Cardiac Reporting Total of 57 Units Entering Cardiac Data into the Application Provides Enhanced Levels of Comparison Data Yielding Prosperous Cardiac Vs. Mixed Unit Outcomes

6 Cardiac Specific Comparison Reports

7 Table of Contents: The Bonus of Cardiac Reporting

8 Cardiac Medical Patients

9 Cardiac Surgical Patient Analysis


11 Severity of Illness Tools
PRISM PICSIM Predicts Intensive Care Outcomes Collection Timeframe is the First 12 hours of ICU Admission Uses the Most Extreme Values Documented Variables: Cardiovascular Data, Acid- Base/Blood Gas Data, Chemistry Data, Hematology Test Data, Two Acute Diagnoses, Two Diagnoses Reflecting Acute and Chronic Health Status, and Four Additional Risk Variables Cardiac Surgical Mortality Score 13 Risk Variables: Includes Physiologic Status, Cardiovascular Condition, and Time of Admit to ICU Uses STAT Score

12 Pediatric Index of Cardiac Surgical Intensive Care Mortality

13 PICSIM Variables Utilized • Gender • Weight
• Patient Origin from Operating Room • Systolic Blood Pressure • Respiratory Rate • FiO2 • Temperature • Status of Mechanical Ventilation • Status of Elective Admission to ICU • Operative status • High risk for Cardiomyopathy or Myocarditis • High risk for Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome • Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) • Creatinine • Status of admission from inpatient unit • Status of Closed or Open chest cardiac massage

16 VPS Cardiac Advisory Group GOALS
Improve the Overall Care of Patients in Cardiac ICU’s Develop Cardiac ICU Specific Components for the Application Advance the VPS Cardiac Database by Continuous Improvements in Data Fields, Data Elements, and Reporting Functionality Identify Areas for Quality Improvement Projects and Research Encourage Use for Adoption and Creation of Knew Knowledge

17 COMPLICATIONS LIST CURRENT PROJECT Bleeding Requiring Reoperation
Post Procedural Arrhythmia Requiring Temporary Pacing or Permanent Pacemaker Post Procedural Arrhythmia Requiring Anti-arrhythmia Medication Pneumothorax Requiring Tx Mechanical Assist Device Vocal Cord Dysfunction Renal Failure Requiring Dialysis Bleeding Requiring Reoperation Cardiorespiratory Arrest Chylothorax New Onset Seizure Pericardial or Pleural Effusion Requiring Drainage Phrenic Nerve Injury


19 A ROBUST RESEARCH TOOL Wide population coverage
Large number of variables collected High level of data granularity Large number of participating institutions (>127 hospitals) Currently the largest database for cardiac ICU patients (>100,000 patients) Standardized Clinical Data Definitions Shares many common definitions with STS- CHSD (Society of Thoracic Surgeons Congenital Heart Surgery Database) Extensive quality validation prior to data release Inter-rater reliability (IRR) concordance > 95% Data extraction: scientific, specific and consistent
