The dataset contains observed, expected, and risk-adjusted rates for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Pediatric Quality Indicators – Pediatric (AHRQ PDI) beginning in 2009.
The AHRQ PDIs are a set of population based measures that can be used with hospital inpatient discharge data to identify ambulatory care sensitive conditions. These are conditions where 1) the need for hospitalization is potentially preventable with appropriate outpatient care, or 2) conditions that could be less severe if treated early and appropriately. Both the Urinary Tract Infection and Gastroenteritis PDIs include admissions for patients aged 3 months through 17 years. The asthma PDI includes admissions for patients aged 2 through 17 years. Eligible admissions for the Diabetes Short-term Complications PDI includes admissions for patients aged 6 through 17 years.
The rates were calculated using Statewide Planning and Research Cooperative System (SPARCS) inpatient data and Claritas population information.
The observed, expected, risk-adjusted rates, and difference in rates, for each AHRQ PDI are presented by resident county (including a statewide total).

- PDI Measure / Discharges 1) Observed Rate= PDI hospitalizations / Claritas (county or zip code) population *100,000 2) Expected Rate= Expected PDI hospitalizations/ Claritas (county or zip code) population *100,000 3) Risk Adjusted Rate= observed PDI rate/ expected PDI rate*statewide PDI rate 4) Difference in Rates=Observed Rate - Expected Rate
- These datasets use version 4.5 of the PQI software. To calculate rates Claritas county or zip code population was used in the denominator. Rates were adjusted using age group, gender and race/ethnicity
- Hospital discharges that did not have an accurate New York State zip code that could be mapped to a New York State county were excluded from both the zip code and county datasets.
