Validation – ERAS® Interactive Audit System
A validation of Swedish hospitals applying ERAS® through the use of the ERAS® Interactive Audit System (EIAS) was recently published by Ulf Gustafsson et al in the World Journal of Surgery.
“Eight hospitals provided complete information for the evaluation, while four hospitals only allowed assessment of coverage and missing data. The average agreement for the assessed postoperative outcome variables was 96.5%. The accuracy was excellent for ‘length of hospital stay,’ ‘reoperation,’ and ‘any complications,’ but lower for other types of complications. Only a few variables had more than 5% missing data, and missingness was associated with hospital type and size. …This validation of the Swedish part of the international ERAS database suggests high patient coverage in EIAS and high agreement and limited missingness in clinically relevant variables.” Read more
