Ischaemic CVD

The ischaemic cardiovascular disease (ICVD) indicator is aimed at improving the recording of ICVD in the PMS. It is based on a comparison between a prevalence estimate from the MoH and the actual number recorded in the PMS.

All the data for this indicator is sourced from your PMS. The data is obtained from the READ codes in classifications or patient history.

There have been interesting results. In the main, High Needs practices have much higher numbers in the practice than the prevalence estimate, while non-High Needs practices have lower numbers.
