Potentially Preventable Hospitalisations in 2015-16

This web update provides the latest rates of potentially preventable hospitalisations for Australia's 31 Primary Health Network areas and more than 300 smaller local areas.
It updates information for 22 conditions where hospitalisation may have been prevented by timely and appropriate provision of primary or community-based health care.

Results are highlighted for five conditions that contribute most to the number of days spent in hospital for potentially preventable hospitalisations: 
       - chronic obstructive pulmonary disease,
       - diabetes complications,
       - congestive heart failure,
       - cellulitis, and
       - kidney and urinary tract infections. 
This web update is accompanied by an interactive tool allowing users to explore the data in depth for their area and compare with other local communities.
