Mass-DAC Contract Ending

The contract agreement between the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, the Massachusetts Hospital Research and Education Association, and the President & Fellows of Harvard College ("the Contract") to collect data for the Massachusetts Cardiac Study ends on December 14, 2017. We've enjoyed working with the Department of Public Health and Massachusetts hospitals for the past 15 years.  We'd also like to thank, with deep gratitude, the many people who have volunteered their time to Mass-DAC on the many committees and for adjudicating data during countless evenings throughout the years.  Their participation has been invaluable and only added to the mission of Mass-DAC.

Hospital data submissions for April-June 2017 (2017q2) is the final quarter Mass-DAC will collect. All data to Mass-DAC must be received prior to November 1, 2017.  During this period of transition, for all subsequent quarters, please continue to submit your appropriate data to the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) National Databases.  The Massachusetts Department of Public Health will provide additional guidance once it is available. For additional information about the Massachusetts Cardiac Study (Section 428 of Chapter 159 of Acts of 2000 and 105 CMR 130.1201-130.1303) that require hospitals that perform cardiac surgery and/or angioplasty to submit patient-specific cardiac surgery and angioplasty data to a data analysis center please contact:

Cardiac Study-Annual Reports

Mass-DAC published annual reports with the Bureau of Health Care Safety and Quality in the Massachusetts Department of Public Health for years 2002-2014. These reports summarized the quality of care provided by all the Commonwealth of Massachusetts state licensed cardiac surgery programs since 2002 and angioplasty programs since 2003. The provision of these data was part of a statewide initiative to increase accessibility of health care data to consumers, policy makers, and providers. These reports provide residents information about the relative performance of cardiac surgery and angioplasty programs as an aid to decision making, and to provide hospitals in the Commonwealth with key information to help drive quality improvement.

The published reports may be downloaded using the links in the table below. All files are published using the portable document format (pdf) and may be viewed using the free Adobe Acrobat Reader.
