Australian Health Performance Framework: PI 3.1.5–Hospitalisation for injury and poisoning, 2020
Identifying and definitional attributes
|Metadata item type:||Indicator|
|Short name:||AHPF PI 3.1.5–Hospitalisation for injury and poisoning, 2020|
|Registration status:||Health, Standard 13/10/2021|
Rate of hospitalised injury cases with a principal diagnosis of injury and poisoning
|Indicator set:||Australian Health Performance Framework, 2020 Health, Standardisation pending 30/07/2021|
Collection and usage attributes
The number of hospitalised injury cases is calculated as the number of hospital separations with a principal diagnosis code in the ICD-10-AM (10th edition) range S00–T75 or T79 (but excluding any with Z50 Care involving use of rehabilitation procedures appearing in any additional diagnosis field for any separations that ended on 1 July 2015 or later), less those records where the mode of admission indicated that the person was transferred from another hospital.
Admitted patients transferred from another hospital are omitted to reduce over-counting. Separations are episodes of admitted-patient care, which can be a total hospital stay (from admission to discharge, transfer or death) or a portion of a hospital stay beginning or ending in a change of type of care (for example, from acute care to rehabilitation). Episodes that began with transfer from another acute care hospital are likely to have been preceded by another episode that also met the case selection criteria, and so are omitted from estimated case counts.
Rates are crude age-specific rates or directly age-standardised to the 2001 Australian population.
Analysis by state and territory is based on location of service.
Analysis by remoteness is based on usual residence of person. Presented per 1,000 population.

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 2020 Australian Health Performance Framework reporting: 2017–18.
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.
Similar data elements were used to those listed above for the 2017–18 Admitted patient care NMDS.
NSW implemented a change in how admissions are counted in 2017-18, resulting in a break in the series of injury data for 2017-18. Data from 2017-18 should therefore not be compared with data from previous years.
For further detailed analysis by Indigenous status see the National Indigenous Reform Agreement (NIRA) report.
