Adult open heart surgery services perform procedures on adult patients age twenty-two (22) years or older. Adult open heart surgery services may perform procedures on patients between the ages of eighteen (18) and twenty-two (22) if the patient's attending physician and the adult open heart service medical director determine that an adult service best meets the needs of the patient.
Annual Reporting Requirements
Beginning July 1, 2019, adult open heart surgery services are required to file an Annual Report with the Department based on data submitted to the Society for Thoracic Surgeons during the previous calendar year. The specific reporting items are set forth in paragraph (G) of rule 3701-84-36 of the Ohio Administrative Code. The rule requires the report to maintain patient confidentiality.
To simplify reporting, the Department created Excel® spreadsheets for open heart surgery services. Follow the forms links below to access the appropriate spreadsheet. When the report is completed, email the form to HCSDATA@odh.ohio.gov. If you have questions regarding the OHCS number, please contact the Department at HCSDATA@odh.ohio.gov.
