摘要

Objective: To examine trends in proportions of hospitals and operators not meeting the minimum percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) volume standards in Taiwan during 2001–2013. Background: The 2013 Clinical Competence Statement recommends that operators perform a minimum of ≥50 PCIs annually (averaged over a 2-year period) in hospitals conducting ≥200 PCIs annually. Methods: Taiwan National Health Insurance claims data from 2001 to 2013 are used to determine the annual numbers of PCIs performed by each hospital and operator. Results: The percentage of hospitals conducting annual PCI volumes of <200 decreased from 57% (26/46) in 2001 to 39% (29/74) in 2007 and 33% (33/91) in 2013; the percentage of operators conducting PCI volumes <50 annually remained relatively constant at 60% (146/243) in 2001, 60% (270/452) in 2007, and 58% (354/611) in 2013; and the percentage of operators conducting low volumes (<50) in low-volume hospitals (<200) decreased from 24% (57/243) in 2001 to 15% (66/452) in 2007 and 12% (76/611) in 2013. Conclusions: Approximately one-third of hospitals and three-fifths of operators in Taiwan failed to meet minimum PCI volume standards. Further research examining patient outcomes from PCIs performed by low-volume hospitals and operators is recommended.
