Description:

By 2014–15, improve the provision of primary care and reduce the proportion of potentially preventable hospital admissions by 7.6 per cent over the 2006–07 baseline to 8.5 per cent of total hospital admissions (Baseline specification).

There are two parts to this performance benchmark:

  1. Improved provision of primary care
  2. Reduced potentially preventable hospital admissions

For Part 1, the measure is under development. For Part 2, the measure is defined below.

Computation description:

For ICD-10-AM coding details, please refer to the specification for National Healthcare Agreement Performance Indicator 18–Selected potentially preventable hospitalisations, 2015.

Analysis of state/territory is based on usual residence of the person.

Presented as a number and a percentage.

Computation:

Number

100 × (Numerator ÷ Denominator)

Numerator:

Number of potentially preventable hospitalisations, divided into three groups and total:

  • vaccine-preventable (e.g. tetanus, measles, mumps, rubella)
  • acute conditions (e.g. ear, nose and throat infections, perforated/bleeding ulcer, pelvic inflammatory disease)
  • chronic conditions (e.g. diabetes complications, asthma, angina, hypertension, congestive heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
  • all potentially preventable hospitalisations.
