Complete Health Indicator Report of Ambulatory Care Sensitive Conditions Hospitalization

Definition

Inpatient hospital visits for ambulatory care sensitive conditions per 100,000 population age 18 or older, age-adjusted.

Numerator

Number of inpatient hospital visits meeting the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality's (AHRQ) [http://www.qualityindicators.ahrq.gov/Modules/PSI_TechSpec.aspx ACSC Prevention Quality Indicator Conditions definition].

Denominator

Total population of New Mexico above 18 years old.

Data Interpretation Issues

Condition classification was based on International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems Version 10 (ICD-10) diagnosis code as per the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality's (AHRQ) Prevention Quality Indicator definition which can be found on the AHRQ's Patient Safety Indicators Technical Specifications page: [http://www.qualityindicators.ahrq.gov/Modules/PSI_TechSpec.aspx].

Why Is This Important?

Ambulatory care sensitive conditions (ACSC) are conditions for which hospitalizations can be prevented or avoided with quality outpatient care from primary care providers. Early intervention by primary care providers can prevent future complications and/or the progression to more severe disease. Studying ACSC related hospitalizations can inform researchers on the quality and timeliness of care residents with ACSC receive from area primary healthcare providers.
