Description:

Number of Indigenous regular clients, aged 35 to 74 years and with no known history of cardiovascular disease (CVD), who have had an absolute CVD risk assessment recorded within the previous 24 months and whose CVD risk was categorised as one of the following:

  • High (greater than 15% chance of a cardiovascular event in the next 5 years)
  • Moderate (10-15% chance of a cardiovascular event in the next 5 years)
  • Low (less than 10% chance of a cardiovascular event in the next 5 years).
Rationale:

Early identification of persons at high CVD risk is important for effective prevention and management of the underlying disease. This is particularly the case for Indigenous Australians because of their poor CVD outcomes.

Since a number of risk factors contribute to the development of CVD in an accumulative fashion, using two or more risk factors to assess risk has greater predictive power and is more accurate than if considered alone. Basing management decisions using multiple CVD risk factors therefore should improve health outcomes.

Computation description:

Count of Indigenous regular clients, aged 35 to 74 years and with no known history of cardiovascular disease (CVD), who have had an absolute CVD risk assessment recorded within the previous 24 months and whose CVD risk was categorised as one of the following:

  • High (greater than 15% chance of a cardiovascular event in the next 5 years)
  • Moderate (10-15% chance of a cardiovascular event in the next 5 years)
  • Low (less than 10% chance of a cardiovascular event in the next 5 years).

‘Regular client’ refers to a client of an Australian Government Department of Health-funded primary health care service (that is required to report against the Indigenous primary health care key performance indicators) who has an active medical record; that is, a client who has attended the Department of Health-funded primary health care service at least 3 times in 2 years.

Computation:

Numerator only

Numerator:

Calculation A: Number of Indigenous regular clients, aged 35 to 74 years and with no known history of cardiovascular disease (CVD), who have had an absolute CVD risk assessment recorded within the previous 24 months with risk assessed as high (greater than 15% over the next 5 years).

Calculation B: Number of Indigenous regular clients, aged 35 to 74 years and with no known history of cardiovascular disease (CVD), who have had an absolute CVD risk assessment recorded within the previous 24 months with risk assessed as moderate (10-15% over the next 5 years).

Calculation C: Number of Indigenous regular clients, aged 35 to 74 years and with no known history of cardiovascular disease (CVD), who have had an absolute CVD risk assessment recorded within the previous 24 months with risk assessed as low (less than 10% over the next 5 years).
