Project Main Description

Funded by an NHMRC Partnership Project Grant.

The APHID study (Assessing Preventable Hospitalisation InDicators) is an investigation into the validity and utility of Potentially Preventable Hospitalisations (also known as hospitalisations for Ambulatory Care Sensitive Conditions). Rates of potentially preventable hospitalisations (PPH) are regarded as an indicator of the quality and affordability of primary and community care, and are increasingly being used to track the progress of health reform in Australia and internationally.

APHID is a partnership between UNSW Australia, University of Western Sydney, the MRC Social and Public Health Sciences Unit (Glasgow), the University of Sydney, the Australian National University, the University of Aberdeen, the Sax Institute, the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care, the NSW Bureau of Health Information and the NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation.
