Cardiothoracic surgery

DSC_0328cTo improve patient care and outcomes in cardiac surgery, members of the Michigan Society of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeons developed a quality initiative. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan later funded the initiative, and now every Michigan hospital with an adult cardiac surgery program participates in this collaboration.

The MSTCVS initiative aims to reduce the risk of complications and improve treatment methods for cardiothoracic surgery. Participants review clinical research and evidence-based cardiac surgery practices, and compare this with the data collected through the initiative’s registry.

For more information, go to mstcvs.org/qc.

Through collaboration and discussion, participants have developed practice guidelines that have resulted in the following outcomes:

  • 25 percent reduction in post-operative pneumonia for cardiac surgery cases (2008-Q12014)
  • 32 percent reduction in prolonged ventilation for cardiac surgery cases (2008-Q12014)
  • 39 percent reduction in use of extra blood for cardiac surgery cases (2008-Q12014)
  • 4 percent pre-operative use of beta-blockers for cardiac bypass surgery
    (National average is 7.8 percent.)
