The Michigan Society of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeons (MSTCVS) Quality Collaborative represents Cardiothoracic surgeons at all hospitals performing adult cardiac surgery in Michigan. Our mission is to promote and share optimal processes of care and cardiac surgery outcomes and implement quality improvement initiatives based on regional and national data as well as clinical research and evidence based cardiac surgery practice and guidelines.

As a part of this mission, we are active participants in the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) Adult Cardiac Surgery Database and support their efforts regarding transparency. With that background, we are providing these Composite Metric data to you.

Overall CABG Score definition: The STS CABG composite score is calculated using a combination of 11 measures of quality divided into four broad categories or domains.

Overall AVR Score definition: Surgical performance is measured based on a combination of the NQF-endorsed isolated AVR mortality measure and the same morbidity outcomes that make up the NQF-endorsed CABG morbidity measures. Please note that there are currently no NQF-endorsed AVR morbidity measures.

Overall CABG/AVR Score definition: Surgical performance is measured based on a combination of the NQF
endorsed isolated AVR mortality measure and the same morbidity outcomes that make up the NQF endorsed CABG morbidity measures.
