Medicaid Inpatient Prevention Quality Overall Composite Risk Adjusted Rate per 100,000 for Adult Discharges by County and Year: Beginning 2011
This chart shows the overall risk adjusted rate per 100,000 for Medicaid prevention quality indicators for adult discharges by county and year. 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).
