Potentially Preventable Hospitalizations Among Hispanic Adults, 2006: Statistical Brief #61.


Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) Statistical Briefs [Internet]. Rockville (MD): Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (US); 2006-.
2008 Oct.


This Statistical Brief presents data from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) on rates of potentially preventable hospitalizations among Hispanic adults. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)’s Prevention Quality Indicators (PQIs) were used to develop hospitalization rates for selected chronic and acute conditions in adults for 2001 and 2006. Rates of hospitalization for chronic conditions were based on admissions for diabetes, specific respiratory conditions and specific circulatory conditions. Rates of hospitalization for acute conditions were based on admissions for dehydration, bacterial pneumonia and urinary tract infections. All differences between estimates noted in the text are statistically significant at the 0.05 level or better.
