The dataset includes information on management of STEMI and nSTEMI patients for all hospitals in England that admit patients with Acute Myocardial Infarction.
It contains analyses from the MINAP Public Report covering period between 1 April 2011 and 31 March 2012.
The following analyses are available at the national and hospital level:
Secondary prevention medication at discharge
Care of patients with nSTEMI
These analyses do not include any data about individual patients, nor do they contain any patient identifiable data.
In practice MINAP records the great majority of patients having STEMI in England and Wales. However it is recognised that a small minority of hospitals do not enter all their nSTEMI patients, mainly due to lack of resources, although in recent years there has been an improvement in this area. The true number of heart attacks is difficult to establish, as it is not possible to compare MINAP data with Hospital Episode Statistics (HES), the only possible comparator, except in aggregate.
