Data & Reports

We monitor and report data on nearly 100 variables that serve as indicators for measuring wait times, procedure safety and effectiveness, clinical processes and patient outcomes.

Disease statistics

  • Age-standardized prevalence rate (%) of cardiovascular disease in BC and health authorities
  • Age-standardized mortality rate per 10,000 population from cardiovascular disease in BC and health authorities
  • Prevalence (%) of selected cardiovascular disease-related risk factors by resident health authority (2011/12) compared to the Canadian average

System statistics

  • Cardiac services, number of procedures, 2008/09 to 2014/15  
  • Risk-adjusted, 30-day and one-year mortality rates following PCI and cardiac surgery in British Columbia, 2007-2011
  • Risk-adjusted 30-day mortality after isolated CABG, 2009-2013
  • Indication for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) by hospital 2011-2013
  • 30-day transfusion rates, CABG/valve surgery 2009-2013
  • 30-day red blood cell transfusion units, open heart surgery 2006/07-2012/13
  • 30-day all cause hospital readmission rates 2009-2015
  • 30-day HF readmission rates 2009-2015
  • ACE/ARB and BB usage 2009-2015


These refer to wait times and wait lists:

Coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG)

  • Percent of isolated coronary artery bypass graft surgeries completed within recommended maximum wait times by hospital site

Wait list activities (fiscal year 2014/15, by period)

  • Cardiac catheterization, all BC cardiac surgery sites
  • ICD and CRT procedures, all BC cardiac ICD/CRT implanting sites
  • EP Complex Ablations, all BC EP cardiac sites
  • Trans-catheter aortic heart valve implantation (TAVI), all BC TAVI sites
  • Other cardiac surgery, all BC cardiac surgery sites

Median wait times (and 90th percentile) (Fiscal year 2013/14)

  • Cardiac implantable electronic devices, all BC ICD/CRT sites
  • Electrophysiology complex ablations, all BC EP cardiac sites

Trans-catheter aortic heart valve implantations (TAVI), all BC TAVI sites

  • Annual average net budget growth
