We are pleased to announce the addition of new metrics into our existing Victorian Cardiovascular Dashboard (VCD). 

The new metrics are for:

  • in-or-out hospital mortality within 30 days of first admission for selected cardiac and stroke conditions
  • cardiac-related hospital acquired complications (HACs) indicators.

This latest release of dashboard measures will further support quality improvement in cardiovascular care with your health service.

About the Victorian Cardiovascular Dashboard (VCD)

The dashboard provides timely data on key quality and safety related cardiac and stroke metrics with risk-adjustment where appropriate. It aims to assist health services to continuously benchmark their performance against peer-grouped hospitals and statewide aggregated data. 

When it was launched back in February 2024, the dashboard featured five readmission indicators. As a result of this update, the dashboard now includes 3 mortality and 6 disaggregated cardiac hospital acquired complications (HACs) indicators.

Health services are encouraged to use this tool to drive local improvements, collaborate with other healthcare providers, and facilitate the sharing and dissemination of best practices.

Dashboard audience

Intended audiences include:

  • public healthcare clinicians
  • senior executive and leadership teams
  • quality, safety and improvement leaders and managers
  • Safer Care Victoria (SCV)
  • Department of Health (DH).
