Definition:

This measures the percent of where health region/RHA residents went for hospitalization, categorized as:

  • a hospital within their (home) RHA,
  • another RHA,
  • in Winnipeg, or
  • out-of-province.
If a patient is transferred between hospitals, each stay is counted as a separate event and is attributed to the appropriate location. Area residence was assigned based on the patient's postal code provided in the hospital abstract at the time of hospitalization.
