Hospital Inpatient Potentially Preventable Complication (PPC) Rates by Hospital (SPARCS): Beginning 2009
The dataset 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).
