    HCUPnet

    HCUPnet is an on-line query system that provides free, instant access to the largest set of all-payer health care databases that are publicly available. Using HCUPnet's easy step-by-step query system, you can generate tables and graphs on statistics and trends for acute care hospitals in the U.S.

    HCUPnet provides:  National and regional estimates for inpatient stays and emergency department visits  State counts of inpatient stays and emergency department visits for those states that agreed to participate  National estimates on readmissions and readmission rates  National and regional information on quality of care in hospitals and potentially preventable admissions, based on the AHRQ Quality Indicators (QIs)

    For most queries, detailed information is available for conditions and procedures (by ICD-9-CM codes and Clinical Classification Software), and for diagnosis related groups (DRGs).

    HCUPnet allows easy access to information from datasets that are part of the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP); details on obtaining these datasets are also available in www.healthdata.gov.

    National Sample Survey of Registered Nurses

    The National Sample Survey of Registered Nurses (NSSRN) Download makes data from the survey readily available to users in a one-stop download. It is intended to help analysts and people who would like to analyze these data. The Survey has been conducted approximately every four years since 1977. For each survey year, HRSA has prepared two Public Use File databases in flat ASCII file format, without delimiters. The 2008 data are also offerred in SAS and SPSS formats. Information likely to point to an individual in a sparsely-populated county has been withheld. General Public Use Files are State-based and provide information on nurses without identifying the County and Metropolitan Area in which they live or work. County Public Use Files provide most, but not all, the same information on the nurse from the General Public Use File, and also identifies the County and Metropolitan Areas in which the nurses live or work. NSSRN data are to be used for research purposes only and may not be used in any manner to identify individual respondents.

    HCUP State Emergency Department Databases (SEDD)

    The State Emergency Department Databases (SEDD) contain the universe of emergency department visits in participating States. The data are translated into a uniform format to facilitate multi-State comparisons and analyses. The SEDD consist of data from hospital-based emergency departments and include all patients, regardless of payer, e.g., persons covered by Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance, and the uninsured.

    The SEDD contain clinical and resource use information included in a typical discharge abstract, with safeguards to protect the privacy of individual patients, physicians, and facilities (as required by data sources). Data elements include but are not limited to: diagnoses, procedures, admission and discharge status, patient demographics (e.g., gender, age), total charges, length of stay, and expected payment source (e.g., Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance, self-pay; for some States, additional discrete payer categories, such as managed care). In addition to the core set of uniform data elements common to all SEDD, some include State-specific data elements, such as the patient's race. The SEDD exclude data elements that could directly or indirectly identify individuals. For some States, hospital and county identifiers are included that permit linkage to the American Hospital Association Annual Survey File and the Area Resource File.

    HCUP Kids' Inpatient Database (KID)

    The KID was specifically designed to permit researchers to study a broad range of conditions and procedures related to child health issues. Researchers and policymakers can use the KID to identify, track, and analyze national trends in health care utilization, access, charges, quality, and outcomes.

    The KID is the only hospital administrative dataset designed specifically to assess use of hospital services by newborns, children, and adolescents. The KID enables studies of specific conditions, procedures, and subpopulations that often cannot be assessed with other databases because children account for a relatively small proportion of hospital stays.

    Using the KID, it is possible to study varied topics including the incidence of uncommon conditions such as congenital anomalies, the economic burden associated with specific procedures or conditions such as adolescent pregnancy, and the pediatric conditions most often associated with particular outcomes such as death in the hospital.

    The KID is the only all-payer inpatient care database for children in the United States. It is a sample of pediatric discharges from 2,500-4,000 U.S. hospitals yielding approximately two to three million unweighted hospital discharges for children per year. About 10 percent of normal newborns and 80 percent of other neonatal and pediatric stays are selected from each hospital that is sampled.

    The KID contains clinical and resource use information included in a typical discharge abstract, with safeguards to protect the privacy of individual patients, physicians, and hospitals (as required by data sources). It includes charge information on all patients, regardless of payer, including children covered by Medicaid, private insurance, and the uninsured. It is created every three years beginning in 1997.

    HCUP Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS)

    The NIS is the largest publicly available all-payer inpatient care database in the United States. It contains data from approximately 8 million hospital stays each year. It approximates a 20-percent stratified sample of U.S. community hospitals and allows for weighted national estimates to identify, track, and analyze national trends in health care utilization, access, charges, quality, and outcomes.

    The NIS is drawn from States participating in HCUP. NIS data are available since 1988, allowing analysis of trends over time.

    The NIS includes charge information for all patients, regardless of payer, including persons covered by Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance, and the uninsured.

    The NIS's large sample size enables analyses of rare conditions, such as congenital anomalies; uncommon treatments, such as organ transplantation; and special patient populations, such as the uninsured. For most States, the NIS includes hospital identifiers that permit linkages to the American Hospital Association (AHA) Annual Survey Database and county identifiers that permit linkages to the Area Resource File.

    The NIS contains clinical and resource use information included in a typical discharge abstract, with safeguards to protect the privacy of individual patients, physicians, and hospitals (as required by data sources). The NIS excludes data elements that could directly or indirectly identify individuals.

    HCUP Nationwide Emergency Department Database (NEDS)

    The Nationwide Emergency Department Sample (NEDS) was created to enable analyses of emergency department (ED) utilization patterns and support public health professionals, administrators, policymakers, and clinicians in their decision-making regarding this critical source of care. The NEDS can be weighted to produce national estimates.

    The NEDS is the largest all-payer ED database in the United States. It was constructed using records from both the HCUP State Emergency Department Databases (SEDD) and the State Inpatient Databases (SID), both also described in healthdata.gov. The SEDD capture information on ED visits that do not result in an admission (i.e., treat-and-release visits and transfers to another hospital). The SID contain information on patients initially seen in the emergency room and then admitted to the same hospital.

    The NEDS contains 25-30 million (unweighted) records for ED visits for over 950 hospitals and approximates a 20-percent stratified sample of U.S. hospital-based EDs.

    The NEDS contains information about geographic characteristics, hospital characteristics, patient characteristics, and the nature of visits (e.g., common reasons for ED visits, including injuries). The NEDS contains clinical and resource use information included in a typical discharge abstract, with safeguards to protect the privacy of individual patients, physicians, and hospitals (as required by data sources). It includes ED charge information for over 75% of patients, regardless of payer, including patients covered by Medicaid, private insurance, and the uninsured. The NEDS excludes data elements that could directly or indirectly identify individuals, hospitals, or states.

    The data are translated into a uniform format to facilitate multi-State comparisons and analyses. The SASD include all patients in participating settings, regardless of payer, e.g., persons covered by Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance, and the uninsured.

    The SASD contain clinical and resource use information included in a typical discharge abstract, with safeguards to protect the privacy of individual patients, physicians, and facilities (as required by data sources). Data elements include but are not limited to: diagnoses, procedures, admission and discharge status, patient demographics (e.g., gender, age), total charges, and expected payment source (e.g., Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance, self-pay; for some States, additional discrete payer categories, such as managed care). In addition to the core set of uniform data elements common to all SASD, some include State-specific data elements, such as the patient's race. The SASD exclude data elements that could directly or indirectly identify individuals. For some States, hospital and county identifiers are included that permit linkage to the American Hospital Association Annual Survey File and the Area Resource File.
