Hospital Discharge Data

As required by RSA 126:25, each licensed health care facility in NH must submit its patient discharge data to the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Medicaid Business and Policy. This data is used by DHHS in the study of access and use of healthcare services in NH (e.g. in the Medicaid population, the uninsured and across facilities), as well as in the planning and evaluation of many of the public health programs. Currently, all 31 licensed general and specialty acute care NH hospitals submit their inpatient hospital data and all 26 general hospitals also submit emergency department, observation stay, ambulatory surgery, urgent care, and other outpatient data. The administrative rules for collection of discharge data, He-C 1500, provide detailed information about what is collected in the data set.
