Calculations/ Formula/ Methodology

The National Heart Failure Audit produces a report with a count of Admission/Readmissions by NHS Trusts. If the Trust has submitted data on at least 20 patient admissions per month or has achieved 70% case ascertainment, then it is deemed to participate in the audit. Case ascertainment is measured against the number of patients discharged with a primary diagnosis of heart failure, as recorded by HES for English Trusts and PEDW for Welsh Health Boards. If the Trust has submitted any records for the 2011/12 period, their participation is recorded as ‘Partial’.
