Noteworthy

  • CASTS launched an effort to update SB 680, the law that created the California CABG Outcomes Reporting Program (CCORP).  On March 9, 2016 Dr. Junaid Khan, President of CASTS, announced that CASTS will spearhead an effort to expand the public reporting law to included PCI and valve procedures.  Support of cardiac surgeons and heart hospitals, as well as other stakeholders, was requested.  A notice was sent to all CA surgeons currently included in the CCORP reports. This was met with a lukewarm response, but a plan to expand reporting using OSHPD data is being developed. The plan is described on the surgeons tab above.
