Abstract:

Hospital discharges measure the number of people who need to stay overnight in a hospital each year. Together with the average length of stay, they are important indicators of hospital activities. Hospital activities are affected by a number of factors, including the demand for hospital services, the capacity of hospitals to treat patients, the ability of the primary care sector to prevent avoidable hospital admissions, and the availability of post‐acute care settings to provide rehabilitative and long‐term care services.
