ECHIM shortlist Suggestions from the EUROCISS Project - Attack rate as the most informative source of information for acute coronary and cerebrovascular events (it includes in- and out-of- hospital fatal and non-fatal first and recurrent events): data can be obtained through the population-based registers - Prevalence of ischemic heart disease and cerebrovascular accidents: data can be obtained through HIS/HES
ECHIM shortlist Suggestions from the EUROCISS Project The manuals of operations produced by the EUROCISS Project describe the core indicators recommended by the Project and provide a simple guide and updated methods to support those EU countries lacking an appropriate cardiovascular surveillance systems but willing to implement a population-based register
AMI/ACS and Stroke Population-based Registers - Manuals of Operations Objectives monitoring disease occurrence (attack and incidence rates) understanding differences between genders, age groups, social classes, ethnic groups, etc. identifying vulnerable groups monitoring in- and out-of-hospital case fatality monitoring the consequences of disease in terms of treatment and rehabilitation tracing the utilization and impact of new diagnostic tools and treatments
AMI/ACS and Stroke Population-based Registers – Manuals of Operations Target population men and women aged 35-74 years well defined geographical area vital statistics routinely collected and easily available each year Completeness and representativeness Minimum of 300 fatal events every year
AMI/ACS and Stroke Population-based Registers – Manuals of Operations Data sources Minimum sources of information required: mortality record with causes of death hospitalised discharge records with clinical information from cardiology, heart surgery, intensive care, medical, rehabilitation, neurological/neurosurgical, stroke, other (e.g. radiology) units nursing home and clinic autopsy register emergency and ambulance service (General Practitioner)
AMI/ACS and Stroke Population-based Registers – Manuals of Operations Onset and survival First ever or recurrent event, with non-fatal and fatal outcome: first ever event refers to people who have never had an event before recurrent event: for a new episode occurring after 28 days from onset. Onset is day 1 Non-fatal event: refers to patients surviving at least 28 days after the symptoms onset Fatal event: refers to an event causing death within 28 days of symptoms onset
AMI/ACS and Stroke Population-based Registers – Manuals of Operations Identification of events Fatal events include: ICD9 codes 410-414 (ICD10: I20-I25) as underlying cause of death Non-fatal events include: ICD9 codes 410-411 (ICD10: I20.0, I21-I22) as primary or secondary hospital discharge diagnosis Fatal events include: ICD-9 430, 431, 432, 434, 436 (ICD-10 I60, I61, I62, I64) as underlying cause of death Non-fatal events include the same codes as primary or secondary hospital discharge diagnosis AMI/ACS STROKE
AMI/ACS and Stroke Population-based Registers – Manuals of Operations Identification of events Record linkage between mortality and hospital discharge records: manual deterministic probabilistic Hot and cold pursuit approaches for detecting in- hospital events
AMI/ACS and Stroke Population-based Registers – Manuals of Operations Quality control Quality control is extremely important for a valid monitoring and comparison and depends: completeness of cases [out of area event] completeness of information
AMI/ACS and Stroke Population-based Registers – Manuals of Operations Validation provides the means to: take into account bias from diagnostic practices and changes in coding systems trace the impact of new diagnostic tools and re-definition of events ensure data comparability within the register (i.e. different sub- populations, different time points, etc) ensure data comparability with other registers within and between countries
AMI/ACS and Stroke Population-based Registers – Manuals of Operations Internal Validity Validation evaluates the sensitivity, specificity and predictive value of the registered diagnosis compared to a golden standard To validate coronary events, the MONICA diagnostic criteria or the New Criteria of the Joint ESC/ACC may be applied as golden standard To validate stroke, MONICA criteria may be applied as golden standard
AMI/ACS and Stroke Population-based Registers – Manuals of Operations External Validity All events occurring in the target population must be registered It is important to know how representative the register is for the whole country according to: Ischemic heart disease mortality rate distribution of risk factors (socioeconomic status and health behaviour) distribution of health service (specialized hospitals, GPs)
EUROCISS recommends Population-based Registers STEPWISE Procedure STEP 1, Target population and routine data: select a geographical administrative area (e.g. with a stable population big enough to collect more than 300 events for ICD-9 410-414 in the age range 35-74), check the availability of hospital discharge records and death certificates with underlying and secondary causes of death, identify problems with these data STEP 2, Pilot study and validation of routine data: estimate coverage, validate discharge diagnoses and mortality causes, analyze demography and representativeness STEP 3, Record linkage: explore the feasibility of record linkage a) within Hospital Records, b) between Hospital Records and Mortality Register, c) with other sources of information (GPs) STEP 4, Set up a population-based register STEP 5, Analyse and disseminate the data from the register
Stepwise procedure for HIS/HES CVD Surveys – Manuals of Operations
Conclusions CVD are responsible of a great number of hospitalisation and deaths Many sources of information must be integrated, including population-based registers and HIS/HES A surveillance system based on the collection of comparable and valid data is essential for evaluating the burden of CVD, time trends and geographical distribution and for planning and implementing appropriate preventive actions http://www.cuore.iss.it/eurociss/en/progetto/progetto.asp
