Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2007-09-26


Represents the total number of hospitalizations for all residents in an area, not the number of individuals hospitalized. Includes both short and long stay patients (out-patient surgery cases are included with short-stay patients). For example, one resident hospitalized three times in one year counts as three hospitalizations.
