New Delhi: In a first-of-its-kind initiative by a Indian hospital chain, Fortis Healthcare Ltd has come out with a clinical outcome data for major cardiology procedures.

The clinical outcome data was based on global norms specified by International Consortium of Health Outcomes Measurement (ICHOM), an organization that looks into health outcomes.

The hospital chain will release the data once in every six months. It will also publish clinical data on other procedures like knee replacement, oncology and kidney transplanting.

“In the next three to five years, we see this expanding and will come out with similar data for all our hospitals,” said Bhavdeep Singh, chief executive officer, Fortis Healthcare.

In a statement, the hospital said that based on the data, Fortis Escorts Heart Institute is performing better with zero or negligible cases of post-operative neurological strokes, renal failures and vascular complications.
