VICORI Cancer/Cardiac data resource profile published


The Virtual Cardio-Oncology Research Initiative (VICORI) programme brings together English national cancer data and six national cardiovascular disease audits to investigate the interplay between cardiovascular disease and cancer.

The VICORI data resource captures adults (aged 18+ years) who were hospitalized for cardiac disease, had a cardiac procedure and/or a cancer diagnosis alongside information on their treatment and outcomes. These data are routinely collected and submitted to health care registries and are linked using a unique health service number.

Detailed data on cancer and cardiac diagnosis, treatment, outcomes, previous and subsequent hospital diagnoses and operations, and mortality are available from 6.2 million cancer diagnoses between 1995 and 2018, and 3.8 million cardiac hospital admissions/procedures between 1999 and 2018.

The VICORI cohort will be updated on a rolling basis with annual updates from the audits.
