7.2.2. Data on Hospital discharges

 

Most health care data available at EuroStat are based on administrative data sources in the countries. These data sources reflect the country-specific way of organising health care and may not always be completely comparable. Data on hospital discharges by diagnosis (ICD10 Chapter XIX) and average length of stay is also available by country, sex and selected ICD codes at EuroStat (information on external causes on accidents and injuries - ICD10 Chapter XX – is only sporadically available).

For an evaluation of data reliability and quality of hospital discharge data for injuries see the final report of the APOLLO project (APOLLO, 2008).

Within this project a database analysing hospital discharge data (Hospital Discharge Database HDD) due to injuries of several countries was created including options to calculate diverse indicators on the basis of the hospital discharge data. Access to this database is only granted to data providers.
