Actual Mortality
The percent of all patients admitted to hospital for a cardiac service line and died during their stay.

Actual Readmission Rate
The percent of all patients admitted to a hospital for a cardiac service line and later readmitted within 30 days to a Virginia hospital for a service related to their prior discharge.

Adjusted Volume (Mortality)
All inpatient hospital discharges excluding 1) hospice patients (shown) 2) patients transferred to another facility (not shown) and 3) patients transferred in with severe risk of mortality and died within 24 hours (not shown).

Adjusted Volume (Readmission)
All inpatient hospital discharges excluding 1) patients transferred to another facility or 2) patients that died.

Cardiac Care Service Lines
Patients may have one of many possible conditions and receive different types of diagnostic or surgical procedures. VHI groups these different conditions and treatments into service lines to better compare care provided.

Cardiac Catheterization
or angiogram is a procedure that identifies possible problems with your heart or its arteries. During a cath, a thin plastic tube, called a catheter, is inserted into a blood vessel in your groin or arm. The catheter is guided up toward your heart. A special dye is injected into the catheter so X-rays can show if you have any artery blockage or other heart problems. www.americanheart.org/ presenter.jhtml?identifier=4491

Cardiology - Invasive
Includes patients with medical conditions generally described in the medical cardiology service line that also had surgery. Surgeries include cardiac catheterization, cardiac pacemaker insertion, balloon angioplasty and placement of cardiac stents.

Cardiology - Medical
Includes diagnosing and therapy for heart disease. Angina, congestive heart failure and acute myocardial infarction (AMI) are all examples of heart conditions. When treatment for these conditions does not include surgery, VHI has grouped them into this service line.

Cardiology - Open Heart Surgery
Includes procedures such as coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) and cardiac valve procedures.

Cases Category
The number of adjusted cases (discharges) grouped into four categories for easy comparison.

Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)
or heart failure, is a condition in which the heart can not pump enough blood to the body's other organs.

For more information on signs and symptoms, tests, and treatment, visit: www.americanheart.org/ presenter.jhtml?identifier=4585

Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG)
also called coronary artery bypass surgery, heart bypass or bypass surgery is a surgical procedure performed to relieve angina and reduce the risk of death from coronary artery disease. Arteries and/or veins from elsewhere in the patient's body are grafted from the aorta to the coronary arteries to bypass atherosclerotic narrowings and improve the blood supply to the coronary circulation supplying the myocardium (heart muscle).
More info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coronary_artery _bypass_surgery

Expected Mortality
The expected mortality rate is calculated based on the 3M APR-DRG risk of mortality index for patients within a hospital compared to similar patients treated in hospitals across Virginia.

Expected Readmission Rate
The expected readmission rate is calculated based on the 3M APR-DRG and severity index for patients within a hospital compared to similar patients treated in hospitals across Virginia.

Hospice Exclusions
All inpatient hospital discharges that were identified as hospice patients. These patients are identified by one of three methods 1) "v66.7" in the first nine diagnosis codes or those submitted by a facility in the tenth or later diagnosis code or 2) discharge status codes indicating hospice care or 3) revenue codes indicating hospice care.

Mortality Rating
This rating indicates whether the mortality (death) rate is more than expected (), as expected (), or less than expected() at a 95% confidence level. A "Less than expected" () rating is generally best.


Too few to calculate means there were fewer than 30 discharges in the service line and/or subgroup--the threshold VHI set for calculating statistical significance.

Mortality Ratio
The actual mortality (death) rate divided by expected mortality (death) rate for a hospital.

Percutaneous Cardiovascular Procedures
These procedures primarily include various types of Coronary Angioplasty. Coronary angioplasty is a medical procedure used to open arteries that have narrowed to the point that they impede blood flow to the heart. This procedure can improve some of the symptoms associated with blocked arteries, such as chest pain and shortness of breath.

Readmission Rating
This rating indicates whether the 30-day related readmission rate is more than expected (), as expected (), or less than expected() at a 95% confidence level. A "Less than expected" () rating is generally best.



Too few to calculate means there were fewer than 30 discharges in the service line and/or subgroup--the threshold VHI set for calculating statistical significance.

Readmission Ratio
The actual readmission rate divided by expected readmission rate for a hospital.

Teaching Status
The hospital facility reported membership or accreditation in the Council of Teaching Hospitals and Health Systems (COTH) and/or the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) or they reported no teaching status (NONE.)

Total Cases
All inpatient hospital discharges by cardiac service lines and/or subgroups.
