Indigenous-specific primary health care: PI20b-Proportion of Indigenous regular clients who have the necessary risk factors recorded to assess absolute cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk, December 2020

Identifying and definitional attributes

Metadata item type:Indicator
Indicator type:Indicator
Short name:PI20b-Proportion of Indigenous regular clients who have the necessary risk factors recorded to assess absolute cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk, December 2020
METeOR identifier:739465
Registration status:Indigenous, Endorsed 14/07/2021
Description:

Proportion of Indigenous regular clients with no known cardiovascular disease (CVD), aged 35 to 74, who had information available to calculate their absolute CVD risk.

Rationale:

Assessment of absolute CVD risk based on multiple risk factors is more accurate than that based on individual risk factors due to the cumulative nature of risk effects. In view of this additive predictive power, basing management decisions using this approach should improve CVD outcomes.

Collection and usage attributes

Population group age from:

35 years

Population group age to:

74 years

Computation description:

Proportion of Indigenous regular clients without known CVD, aged 35 to 74, who had all of the following information recorded within the previous 24 months:

  • tobacco smoking
  • diabetes status
  • systolic blood pressure
  • total cholesterol and HDL cholesterol levels
  • age
  • sex.

Presented as percentages.

Operationalisation of tobacco smoking status, sex and age:

Where an Indigenous regular client’s tobacco smoking status and/or sex does not have an assessment date assigned within the Clinical Information System (CIS), tobacco smoking status and/or sex as recorded in the CIS should be treated as current (i.e. as having been updated within the previous 24 months).

Age is to be derived from date of birth.

Computation:

(Numerator ÷ Denominator) x 100

Numerator:

Number of Indigenous regular clients without known CVD, aged 35 to 74, who had all of the following information recorded within the previous 24 months:

  • tobacco smoking
  • diabetes status
  • systolic blood pressure
  • total cholesterol and HDL cholesterol levels
  • age
  • sex.
