Notes:

Ambulatory Care Sensitive Hospitalizations are hospitalizations for conditions where timely and effective ambulatory care can decrease hospitalizations by preventing the onset of an illness or condition, controlling an acute episode of an illness or managing a chronic disease or condition.

Hospitalizations are inpatient hospital stays as measured by stays that were completed during the specified year. The number of hospitalizations is often greater than the number of persons hospitalized since some persons are hospitalized more than once during a year.

Percent of all hospitalizations that were categorized as preventable hospitalizations for the specified year.

Leading Ambulatory Care Sensitive Conditions in the table are based on primary diagnosis only.

All Other Ambulatory Care Sensitive Conditions include primary and secondary diagnoses for iron deficiency anemia and nutritional deficiency, by secondary diagnosis for dehydration, and by primary diagnosis for all other conditions.
