Description

The datasets contain number of Medicaid PQI hospitalizations (numerator), county Medicaid population (denominator), observed rate, expected number of hospitalizations and rate, and risk-adjusted rate for Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Prevention Quality Indicators – Adult (AHRQ PQI) for Medicaid enrollees beginning in 2011. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Prevention Quality Indicators (PQIs) 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. All PQIs apply only to adult populations (over the age of 18 years). The rates were calculated using Medicaid inpatient data for the numerator and Medicaid enrollee characteristics for the denominator. The observed, expected, and risk-adjusted rates for each AHRQ PQI is presented by either resident county (including a statewide total) or resident zip code (including a statewide total).

PQI Measure / Discharges Observed Rate= total number of PQI hospitalizations / Medicaid enrollee (county or zip code) population *100,000 Expected Rate= total number of expected PQI hospitalizations/ Medicaid enrollee (county or zip code) population *100,000 Risk Adjusted PQI Rate= observed PQI rate/ expected PQI rate*statewide PQI rate
Notes
Notes
These datasets use version 4.5 of the PQI software. To calculate rates, New York State Medicaid county or zip code population was used in the denominator. Rates were adjusted using age group, gender and race/ethnicity.
Disclaimers
Limitations
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 datasets.
