Hospital Risk-Standardized Complication Rate Following Implantation of ICD
INACTIVE REVIEW: This measure review is older than five years.
This measure provides hospital specific risk-standardized rates of procedural complications following the implantation of an ICD in patients at least 65 year of age. At present, the measure uses clinical data available in the National Cardiovascular Data Registry ICD registry for risk adjustment that has been linked with administrative claims data using direct and indirect patient identifiers to identify procedural complications
ACP supports this measure because the risk-adjustment is validated and extensive.
