HES and NICOR data linkage for cardiac failure population analysis
Summary: This research will encompass a population-based, patient-level analysis of heart failure in England over a 5-year period using a dataset created by linking the HES and NICOR databases. Analyses will look into the re-occurrence of hospitalisation after the initial diagnosis of heart failure, the influence of population factors on risk of re-hospitalisation and the resultant cost implications.
