Heart failure 001.1 Rationale

All patients with a diagnosis of HF, are included on the register.

Heart failure 001.2 Reporting and verification

See indicator wording for requirement criteria.

There are two disease registers used for the purpose of calculating APDF for the HF indicators:

1. a register of patients with HF is used to calculate APDF for HF001 and HF002

2. a register of patients with HF due to left ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD) is used to calculate APDF for HF003 and HF004.

Register 1. is defined in indicator HF001. Register 2. is a sub-set of register 1. and is composed of patients with a diagnostic code for LVSD as well as HF.
