Deaths from venous thromboembolism (VTE) related events within 90 days post discharge from hospital (NHSOF 5.1)

The indicator measures the number of patients who have been admitted to hospital with any cause and die within 90 days of their last discharge from a VTE related event, expressed as a rate per 100,000 adult hospital admissions.


This indicator aims to measure the reduction in deaths from VTE related events by driving efforts to improve the prevention, detection and treatment of VTE before it causes death.
