Cardiac Surgery and Percutaneous Coronary Interventions by Hospital API : Beginning 2008
This featured Application Programming Interface (API) page serves as a reference for developers who are building tools that interact with the data on Health Data NY. The page provides examples on how to retrieve data from each of the fields within the dataset. A description of each field is also provided. This specific featured API page is for the Cardiac Surgery and Percutaneous Coronary Interventions by Hospital API : Beginning 2008 dataset.
That dataset contains the number of cases, number of in hospital/30 day deaths, observed, expected and risk- adjusted mortality rates for cardiac surgery and percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) by hospital. Regions represent where the hospitals are located. The initial Health Data NY dataset includes patients discharged between January 1, 2008, and December 31, 2010. Analyses of risk-adjusted mortality rates and associated risk factors are provided for 2010 and for the three-year period from 2008 through 2010. For PCI, analyses of all cases, non-emergency cases (which represent the majority of procedures) and emergency cases are included. Subsequent year reports data will be appended to this dataset.
The dataset is available at: https://health.data.ny.gov/Health/Cardiac-Surgery-and-Percutaneous-Coronary-Interven/jtip-2ccj. For more information about the dataset, go to the dataset and look in the "About" section.
**NOTE*** This API link will take you to a new page that explains Socrata’s new Open Data API (SODA). APIs can now be created directly from any dataset, simply go to the dataset, select 'Export' then select 'SODA API' and click 'API docs'. The new API doc also provides a way to see the old API documentation if needed. To learn more about Socrata's Open Data API visit: https://data.ny.gov/developers.
