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.
