The dataset contains Potentially Preventable Readmission observed, expected, and risk adjusted rates by hospital for all payer beneficaries beginning in 2009.
The Potentially Preventable Readmission (PPR) software created by 3M Health Information Systems, identifies hospital admissions clinically related to an initial admission within a specified time period. For this dataset, readmissions were evaluated within a 30-day time period from the discharge date of the initial hospital admission. A PPR may have resulted from a deficiency in the process of care and treatment at the initial hospitalization or lack of post discharge follow up. PPRs are not defined by unrelated events that occur post-discharge, such as admissions for trauma.
For each hospital, the total number of at risk admissions, the total number of observed PPR chains, the observed PPR rate, the expected PPR rate, and risk adjusted PPR rate are presented by year. For more information, check out http://www.health.ny.gov/statistics/sparcs/, or go to the "About" tab.

- 1) Observed Rate= observed PPR chains/total number of “at risk” inpatient events *100 2) Expected Rate= total number of expected PPR chains/total number of “at risk” admissions *100 Risk 3) Adjusted PPR Rate= Hospital observed PPR rate/ Hospital expected PPR rate*statewide PPR rate
- 3M PPR software version by year of the data: 2009 – 2012 – Version 30.0 2013 – Version 30.1 Rates were adjusted using age group, mental health status, severity of illness (SOI), and APR‐DRG.
- These are only inpatient hospital discharges from Article 28 facilities. The data is analyzed annually, so if a readmission took place in January of the next year, it is not counted.
