Data Note(s)
  • ICD-9-CM Code(s): 410, 411, 412, 413, 414 or 429.2 listed as the principal diagnosis. ICD-10-CM Code(s): I20, I21, I22, I23, I24 or I25 listed as the principal diagnosis.
  • Data are suppressed when there are 1-4 hospitalizations in a year.
  • 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.
  • This is primary, quantitative data.
