Complete Health Indicator Report of Heart Disease Deaths

Definition

The rate of heart disease related deaths (ICD-10 codes I00-I09, I11, I13, I20-I51) per 100,000 population (age-adjusted to 2000 U.S. population).

Numerator

Resident deaths with ICD-9 codes 390-398, 402, 404, 410-429, years 1996-1998; ICD-10 codes I00-I09, I11, I13, I20-I51, after 1999, as the underlying cause of death during a calendar year.

Denominator

Total midyear resident population for the same calendar year.

Why Is This Important?

Heart disease is a general term that describes many different diseases including coronary heart disease, rheumatic heart disease, hypertension, heart failure, and other heart conditions. The most common form of heart disease is coronary heart disease, also known as coronary artery disease. Coronary heart disease is the largest contributor to death from heart disease.

How Are We Doing?

Utah and the U.S. have experienced declining heart disease death rates for several decades. However, from 2009 to 2011, Utah's rate did not decline. U.S. data for for this period were not available for comparison.

How Do We Compare With the U.S.?

In 2009, Utah's heart disease death rate was 140.9/100,000, which was lower than the national rate of 180.1/100,000.

What Is Being Done?

The Utah Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Program (HDSPP) receives federal funding to reduce morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular disease in Utah. HDSPP collaborates with other Utah Department of Health programs, community health centers, the regional Medicare Quality Improvement Organization, the American Heart Association, and others to implement policy and environmental changes that will improve control of high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

Health Program Information

In 2012, the Utah Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Program published a statistical report titled the Impact of Heart Disease and Stroke in Utah. This report describes overall patterns in cardiovascular disease and risk factors at the state and national levels and among Utah subpopulations (age group, sex, race, ethnicity, and Utah Small Area).

References and Community Resources

Heart disease and stroke are the first and fourth leading causes of death in the United States. Heart disease is responsible for 1 of every 3 deaths in the country. Million Hearts is a national initiative that has set an ambitious goal to prevention 1 million heart attacks and strokes by 2017. The impact will be even greater over time. Million Hearts aims to prevent heart disease and stroke by: - Improving access to effective care. - Improving the quality of care for the ABCS (appropriate aspirin prescription, blood pressure control, cholesterol control, and smoking cessation) - Focusing clinical attention on the prevention of heart attack and stroke. - Activating the public to lead a heart-healthy lifestyle. - Improving the prescription and adherence to appropriate medications for the ABCS. See what you can do to be part of the solution. Visit http://millionhearts.hhs.gov/be_one_mh.html for more information.
