Atrial Fibrillation

The standard set

The ICHOM Standard Set for Atrial Fibrillation is the result of hard work by a group of leading physicians, measurement experts and patients. It is our recommendation of the outcomes that matter most to patients with Atrial Fibrillation. We urge all providers around the world to start measuring these outcomes to better understand how to improve the lives of their patients.

1 Both patient and clinician reported outcomes.

2 Both patient reported outcome and long-term consequence of treamtent.

3 Mortality (all cause and cardiovascular)

4 Systemic embolism and unclassied stroke also included.
