Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2010-08-12


In Martens et al. (2003), the location of hospitalization was calculated two different ways. First, the location of hospitals' patients, based on their residence information (that is, where RHAs' hospital patients came from). Second, the hospitalization location of RHAs' residents, based on the hospital location (that is, where RHAs' residents went for hospitalization). There are five categories:

    (i) In Region,
    (ii) Out of Region: Brandon,
    (iii) Out of Region: Winnipeg,
    (iv) Out of Region: Other, and
    (v) Out of Province.

In Martens et al. (2010), "location of hospitalization" was defined as where RHA residents went for hospitalizations using the following categories:

    (i) percentage of hospitalizations in patient's RHA,
    (ii) percentage of hospitalizations in another RHA,
    (iii) percentage of hospitalizations in a Winnipeg hospital, and
    (iv) percentage of hospitalizations outside of Manitoba.
Only hospitalizations attributed to Manitoba residents were counted.
