Rates directly age-standardised to the 2001 Australian population.
Analysis by state and territory, remoteness and SEIFA Index of Relative Socioeconomic Disadvantage (IRSD) is based on usual residence of person.Presented as a number per 100,000 population.
|Computation:||100,000 x (Numerator ÷ Denominator)
Calculated separately for each of the 3 computations:
Number of potentially preventable hospitalisations, divided into three groups and total:
|Numerator data elements:|
|Denominator data elements:|
2008-09, 2009-10 (revised) and 2010–11—Nationally (by three groups and total) by SEIFA Index of Relative Socio-Economic Disadvantage (IRSD) deciles.
2008-09, 2009-10 (revised) and 2010–11—State and territory (by three groups and total), by:
2007-08, 2008-09, 2009-10, 2010-11 — Nationally, by Indigenous status by remoteness.
Some disaggregation may result in numbers too small for publication. National disaggregation by Indigenous status will be based on data only from jurisdictions for which the quality of Indigenous identification is considered acceptable.
|Disaggregation data elements:|
Most recent data available for 2013 Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Reform Council (CRC) report: 2010–11.
The scope of the National Hospital Morbidity Database (NHMD) is episodes of care for admitted patients in essentially all hospitals in Australia, including public and private acute and psychiatric hospitals, free-standing day hospital facilities, alcohol and drug treatment hospitals and dental hospitals.
Potentially preventable hospitalisations are called ‘ambulatory care sensitive hospitalisations’ in some jurisdictions.
