New ESRI report looks at patient discharges from acute public hospitals participating in the HIPE scheme

A new report from the ESRI examines in-patient and day patient discharges from acute public hospitals participating in the Hospital In-Patient Enquiry (HIPE) scheme in 2012.  Discharge activity is examined by type of patient and hospital and by demographic parameters.  Particular issues of relevance to the Irish health care system relate to the composition of discharges by medical card and public/private status.  Discharges are also analysed by diagnoses, procedures, major diagnostic categories, and diagnosis related groups.  Maternity discharges are examined separately from other discharges.  The analysis is presented at the national level and is also disaggregated by HSE administrative areas.
