Definition:

An inpatient hospitalization where the main reason for the hospital stay was related to pregnancy or birth. In Fransoo et al. (2013), pregnancy and birth hospitalizations were defined by a major clinical category (MCC) code 13, and supplemented with hospitalizations with a Most Responsible Diagnosis code containing ICD-10-CA codes Z32-Z35 (for hospitalizations with an ungroupable Case Mix Group (CMG™) code only.) Only patients age 18 at older at time of admission were placed into this category. See Service Type - Hospital for further details about classification of hospitalizations and days of care.
