HPTOTDIS
Annual total number of hospital discharges

Description

[ PRELIMINARY VARIABLE: Variable description may change once we confirm the universe and assess the comparability of this variable over time. ]

For all persons, HPTOTDIS captures the total number of hospital discharges the person had during the current calendar year. HPTOTDIS includes hospitalizations where the person was discharged the same day that they were admitted ("zero-night stays," ZNTOTVIS) and hospitalizations where the person spent one or more nights in the hospital before being discharged. To obtain the total number of hospitalizations where persons spent at least one night in the hospital, analysts can subtract ZNTOTVIS from HPTOTDIS.
