ANALYSIS OF INPATIENT ADMISSIONS DATA FOR INJURIES ACROSS BRITAIN AND IRELAND

Countries Covered: Great Britain and Ireland
Date:
 2010

IOBI have developed a specification which will enable comparative analysis of inpatient data across the 5 countries in Britain and Ireland. Agreeing consistent case definitions and appropriate methodologies for use across all five nations was a major focus of the work. This was important because inpatient data varied from country to country in terms of availability, definitions, inclusion and exclusion criteria, coding systems, coding practices and reporting timeframes.
