About

This business case has been created so that each organisation can assess the potential for improvements in the identification and management of Atrial Fibrillation (AF) in four key areas:

  • Diagnosis of AF
  • - Detection Gap
  • Identification of those at high risk of stroke (CHA2DS2-VASc):
  • - Protection Gap 1 (no risk assessment)
  • Initiation of anticoagulant therapy in line with national guidelines
  • - Protection Gap 2 (eligible and untreated)
  • Maintenance of adequate anticoagulation: 
  • - Perfection Gap
