The Academy funded the Royal College of Surgeons of England to produce a report: Hospital Episode Statistics: Creating the evidence to support revalidation
The project's aim was to assess the strengths and weaknesses of using administrative data for revalidation in the areas of ischaemic heart disease, urological malignancies, and peripheral vascular disease. The Project Group distinguished between procedure-specific indicators and disease-specific indicators as well as between hospital-specific and consultant-specific outcomes.
The report has been published this month. Follow the link above or download the report below.
