This chart shows the trend in statewide observed rates of Potentially Preventable Complications (PPC) for all payer beneficiaries beginning in 2009.
The chart is based on a dataset that contains Potentially Preventable Complications (PPC) observed, expected, and risk-adjusted rates for all payer beneficiaries by hospital beginning in 2009.
The Potentially Preventable Complications (PPC), obtained from software created by 3M Health Information Systems, are harmful events or negative outcomes that develop after hospital admission and may result from processes of care and treatment rather than from natural progression of the underlying illness and are therefore potentially preventable.
The rates were calculated using Statewide Planning and Research Cooperative System (SPARCS) inpatient data.
The observed, expected and risk adjusted rates for PPC are presented by hospital (including a statewide total). For more information, check out:

- 3M PPC Software version by year of the data: 2009‐2012 ‐ Version 31; 2013 ‐ Version 32 To calculate rates, discharges at risk for PPC assignment were used as the denominator. Rates were adjusted using APR‐DRG and severity of illness (SOI).
- Hospitals that did not have accurate present on admission (POA) variable reporting, as determined by POA validation testing, had all their discharges excluded from the analysis dataset.
