Number

100 × (Numerator ÷ Denominator)

Numerator:Help on this term

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.
