Complete Health Indicator Report of Heart Disease Mortality Rate

Definition

The age-adjusted heart disease mortality rate is defined as the number of heart disease-related deaths per 100,000 population. The following is the list of ICD-10 codes for heart disease related deaths: I00-I09, I11, I13, and I20-I51.

Numerator

Number of deaths due to heart disease in the resident population for a specified time period.

Denominator

Mid-year resident population for a specified time period.

Why Is This Important?

Heart disease was the leading cause of death in the United States in 2017, killing 647,457 and accounting for nearly 1 in 4 deaths.^1^ In the United States someone has a heart attack every 40 seconds.^2^ Each minute, someone in the United States dies from a heart disease-related event.^3^ Heart disease costs the United States about $207 billion each year.^4^ This total includes the cost of health care services, medications, and lost productivity. Heart disease is not a single disease, but rather multiple diseases with different causes, risks, and potential interventions. Heart diseases include coronary heart disease, rheumatic heart disease, ischemic heart disease, hypertension, pulmonary heart diseases, heart failure, heart valve disease, cardiomyopathy, and other heart conditions. The most common form of heart disease is coronary heart disease (CHD), also known as coronary artery disease. CHD is the largest contributor to death from heart disease. Because certain types of heart disease have a long latency period, years might pass before changes in behavior or clinical practice affect heart disease mortality. Certain types of heart disease (e.g., heart valve disease) are not amenable to primary prevention or screening, but most heart diseases can be affected by lifestyle behaviors and health status.^5^ Modifiable risk factors for CHD include behaviors (e.g., tobacco use, physical inactivity, and improper nutrition), health status (e.g., hypertension, hyperlipidemia, overweight, or diabetes), and policies (e.g., smoking policies in restaurants and worksites).^6^ Substantial differences in CHD death rates and preventive measures exist by race, age, sex, place of residence, and other demographic factors.^3^[[br]] [[br]] ---- {{class .SmallerFont 1.

Healthy People Objective: Reduce coronary heart disease deaths

U.S. Target: 103.4 deaths per 100,000 population

How Are We Doing?

Heart disease is the second leading cause of death in Alaska. In 2018, heart disease claimed the lives of 799 Alaskans (512 males and 287 females). Among the leading causes of death in Alaska, heart disease ranked fourth in total years of potential life lost with 6,650 years lost. On average, 8.3 years of life were lost prematurely for each heart disease death.^7^ In Alaska, there has been a decline in heart disease mortality from 239.5 deaths per 100,000 people in 1990 to 128.0 deaths per 100,000 people in 2018. Males have a significantly high rate of heart disease mortality, being 165.7.0 per 100,000 for males relative to 92.1 per 100,000 for females in 2018. Heart disease mortality rate was highest in the Northern (221.8 per 100,000) and Southwest (181.3 per 100,000) regions and lowest in the Anchorage (126.4 per 100,000) and Matanuska-Susitna (115.3 per 100,000) in the 5-year period of 2014-2018. Alaska Native people had significantly higher rates of heart disease mortality (207.1 per 100,000) than white individuals (116.8) in Alaska in 2018, and the disparity in these rates has been increasing over the past decade.[[br]][[br]] ---- {{class .SmallerFont 7.

How Do We Compare With the U.S.?

Deaths due to heart disease have been declining in the U.S. Alaska's 2017 age-adjusted heart disease death rate of 128.0 per 100,000 was lower than the 2017 U.S. age-adjusted rate of 165.0 per 100,000. In 2017, national rates of heart disease mortality were higher in males (209.0 per 100,000) than females (129.6 per 100,000).^1^ There were also major differences in rates per 100,000 of heart disease mortality across races in 2017: Whites - 168.9, Black - 208.0, Asian/Pacific Islanders - 85.5, and American Indian/Alaska Native - 151.4.^1^[[br]] [[br]] ---- {{class .SmallerFont 1.

What Is Being Done?

The Alaska Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Program (HDSPP) educates and encourages partner organizations to utilize information from the American Heart Association (AHA) "[http://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/Conditions/My-Life-Check---Lifes-Simple-7_UCM_471453_Article.jsp#W1YY8jaWyHt 7 simple steps]", and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) "[https://millionhearts.hhs.gov/about-million-hearts/index.html Million Hearts]" initiative in program activities. The AHA defines and promotes 7 simple steps to a healthier heart to help individuals improve health behaviors. These steps include managing blood pressure, controlling blood cholesterol, reducing blood sugar, getting active, eating better, losing weight and smoking cessation. In 2012, CMS and CDC launched the Million Hearts initiative to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes by 2017. To meet this goal, the many Million Hearts public and private partners focus, coordinate, and enhance cardiovascular disease prevention activities. Significant progress was made towards the goal, however challenges faced include an aging population and increasing rates of obesity and diabetes. Million Hearts has developed a year 2020 framework based on optimizing health care and an evidence-based process to improve ABCS (Aspirin when appropriate, Blood pressure control, Cholesterol management and Smoking cessation), keeping people healthy and improving outcomes for priority populations (reducing heart disease disparity in racial/ethnic groups). In Alaska, the Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) and Southcentral Foundation (SCF) operate the [https://www.cdc.gov/wisewoman/about.htm WISEWOMAN] program to help Alaska Native women understand and reduce their risk for heart disease and stroke and promote lasting heart-healthy lifestyles. The program serves low-income uninsured and underinsured women aged 40 to 64 years with free screenings and counseling about their risk for heart disease and stroke as they participate in evidenced-based lifestyle programs, individual health coaching or are referred to other community resources.

Risk Factors

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) list risk factors under three main categories: conditions, behavioral and family history. Conditions affecting risk for heart disease include high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol and diabetes. Behavioral aspects include an unhealthy diet, inadequate physical activity (sedentary lifestyle), obesity, consumption of too much alcohol and tobacco use. Family history notes risks related to traits passed through genes to the individual.^10^[[br]] [[br]] Substantial differences in coronary heart disease death rates and preventive measures exist by race, age, sex, place of residence, and other demographic factors.[[br]] [[br]] {{class.SmallerFont 10.

Data are age adjusted to U.S. 2000 standard population. ICD-10 codes I00-I09, I11, I13, I20-I51.   ** = Data not available Alaska Native people refers to any mention of American Indian or Alaska Native heritage when enumerating racial and ethnic background. Individuals of multiple races incorporating American Indian/Alaska Native are moved into the Alaska Native group. When race and ethnicity are consider concurrently, Hispanic individuals with American Indian/Alaska Native heritage are combined into the Alaska Native (any mention) group and removed from the Hispanic class. The definition of the Alaska Native group is intended to conform to the eligibility requirements for access to Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium.
