Data News Item: New data! Data updated for hospital discharge indicators sourced from the California Office of Statewide Planning and Health (OSHPD) Public Patient Discharge Data files (CA Service Areas only).

Data for survey years 2010-2011 acquired from OSHPD (replacing data for survey year 2010 alone). Improved data processing techniques now generate crude and age-adjusted discharge rates per 10,000 population for select patient conditions. Indicator tables continue to report condition-specific discharge events as a percentage of total patient discharges by age, gender, race, and ethnicity groupings. Affected Indicators:

Clinical Care

  • Preventable Hospital Events

Health Outcomes

  • Asthma Hospitalizations
  • Diabetes Hospitalizations
  • HIV Hospitalizations
