Atlas Num.3 on Coronary revascularisation

Echo ECHO Atlas

Atlas Num.3 on Coronary revascularisation Mortality and morbidity from cardiovascular disease are considered a public health issue. In fact, coronary ischaemic disease is one of the leading causes of death in Europe. The study of systematic variation on its surgical management, and associated outcomes, offers a critical view on how healthcare organizations provide care to patients.

Atlas Num.1 on Lower Value Care (LVC) Health Systems bear substantial opportunity costs by using interventions that are deemed lower-value. Quantifying the utilisation of this type of care and its systematic variation across policy-relevant geographical units offers insight at a glance into the local potential for enhancing efficiency (i.e., value-based provision of care).
