Includes primary and secondary diagnoses.

The crude rate was directly age and gender standardised to the European standard population.

Excludes admissions to private hospitals.

 

  • Principal Diagnosis: The diagnosis established after study to be chiefly responsible for occasioning an episode of admitted patient care, an episode of residential care, or an attendance at the health care establishment, as represented by a code. (Health Data Standards Committee (2006), National Health Data Dictionary, Version 13, AIHW).

 

  • Additional Diagnoses: A condition or complaint either coexisting with the principal diagnosis or arising during the episode of admitted patient care, episode of residential care or attendance at a health care establishment, as represented by a code (Health Data Standards Committee (2006), National Health Data Dictionary, Version 13, AIHW). 

 

  • A procedure is defined as a clinical intervention that is
    • surgical in nature, and/or
    • carries a procedural risk, and/or
    • carries an anaesthetic risk, and/or
    • requires specialised training, and/or
    • requires special facilities or equipment only available in an acute care setting.

 

      The order of codes should be determined using the following hierarchy:

  • procedure performed for treatment of the principal diagnosis
  • procedure performed for treatment of an additional diagnosis
  • diagnostic/exploratory procedure related to the principal diagnosis
  • diagnostic/exploratory procedure related to an additional diagnosis for the episode of care.       (NCCH, 2008)

 

  • A day patient is admitted to hospital for treatment on an elective (rather than an emergency) basis and who is discharged alive, as scheduled, on the same day (Department of Health and Children, 2001).  Births are not included.

 

  • An in-patient is admitted to hospital for treatment or investigation on an elective or emergency basis.  An elective admission is and admission or procedure that has been arranged in advance (Department of Health and Children, 2001).  An emergency admission is unforeseen and requires urgent care (Department of Health and Children, 2001).
