STS is pleased to announce the release of the Adult Cardiac Surgery Database Executive Dashboard Report, now available on the Database platform. The Executive Dashboard includes the following components:

  • The participant’s star ratings for the last six star-rating periods, allowing you to easily track your site’s risk-adjusted performance longitudinally.
  • Resource utilization metrics for isolated coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) procedures, which provide participants near real-time data vs. STS benchmark data from the previous analysis period, including: 
    • ICU times
    • Postoperative total ventilation hours
    • Postoperative length of stay
    • Total blood project usage (intraoperative/postoperative)
  • Participant’s performance on meeting inclusion eligibility criteria. Utilizing green, yellow, and red statuses and convenient drill-down functionality, participants can easily identify cases of concern and save valuable time. And case counts are available to allow users to verify if their site meets case count requirements for analysis. Updates to this report are ongoing to provide real-time data. Refer to the Notifications tab on the IQVIA Platform for updates. 

Additional procedure types for resource utilization metrics were released on April 13, 2024. More utilization metrics are being considered. If you have a suggestion, contact Carole Krohn at ckrohn@sts.org.
