Data Note(s)

Data Source: Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA). Click to view Ambulatory Care Sensitive Conditions Codes

To keep abreast of medical knowledge, the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) is revised periodically. Large increases or decreases in hospitalizations are typically indicative of such changes. Effective October 1, 2015, the ICD 9th Revision Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) transitioned to ICD 10th Revision Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM). Hospitalization data before October 2015 use ICD-9-CM; starting in October 2015, hospitalization data use ICD-10-CM. Consequently increases or decreases starting in 2015 may not be due to changes in disease trends but due to changes in coding.

Population:The population data for 2001-2010, along with rates affected by the population data, has been updated on FLHealthCHARTS. Following a census, it is customary to revise population projections for the intercensal years based on information from the latest census. Revising the population data from what was predicted to actual estimates ensures accurate accounting of the racial, ethnic, and gender distribution of the population. These changes affect the population data and rates calculated for your community.

Some counts and conditions using ICD-9-CM diagnostic codes may differ from those published previously on FLHealthCHARTS. In July 2016, a revised, final version of the diagnostic codes for Ambulatory Care Sensitive Conditions was obtained directly from Dr. John Billings, Director, Health Policy and Management Program, Robert F. Wagner School of Public Service, New York University.

County Quartiles:

(Darkest color on maps)

Quartiles in this report allow you to compare your county’s data with other counties.
Calculation of quartiles require several steps to create the final results.
First, the county values are sorted from most favorable to least favorable.
Second, a rank is assigned based on the value for each county in relation to the preceding county. If a county has the same value as the preceding county, then the same rank is assigned.
Third, the ranking is divided into 4 groups. The number of counties in each group depends on how many counties had the same rank.

Data are suppressed in instances in which a county has between 1 and 4 reported hospitalizations for a particular time period. Rates are suppressed in these instances as well.
