62. Hospital beds
 

Definition

The total number of hospital beds per 100,000 inhabitants.

Rationale

Data on health care resources form a major element of public health information as they describe the capacities available for different types of health care provision. The quantity and quality of health care services provided and the division of work established between the different institutions are a subject of ongoing debate in all countries. Sustainability – continuously providing the necessary monetary and personal resources needed – and meeting the challenges of ageing societies are the primary perspectives used when analysing and using these data.

Relevant policy areas

  • Sustainable health care systems
  • Health inequalities (including accessibility of care)
  • Health system performance, quality of care, efficiency of care, patient safety
  • (Planning of) health care resources

Definition

The total number of practising nursing and caring professionals per 100,000 inhabitants.

Rationale

Indicator widely used in assessments of accessibility and efficiency of health care services. It describes availability of staff for the whole country and the distribution of staff across the country. Time trends may help to identify e.g. staff shortages due to demographic developments such as migration.

Mobility of professionals (D)

This section contains those indicator topics that are not ready yet for incorporation in international regular data collections (and thus for implementation) due to considerable methodological and/or data availability problems.

65. Mobility of professionals


Definition

To be developed, definition covering both inflow and outflow aspects, e.g.:

  • The number and percentage of health care professionals emigrating
  • The number and percentage of health care professionals immigrating.

Rationale

The EU has promoted the freedom of movement of workers, the freedom of establishment and the freedom to provide services as the cornerstones of the EU structure. Therefore, professional mobility has been high on the European political agenda in recent years. Health professionals are key players in the provision of health services, but in the health sector, occupational mobility should never be at the expense of quality and safety of care in any Member State. Thus, the role of mobility of health professionals should be adequately addressed and evaluated, from a (public) health perspective.

Relevant policy areas

  • Sustainable health systems

  • (Planning of) health care resources
  • Health in All Policies (HiAP)

66. Medical technologies (CT/MRI)


Definition

  1. Number of Computer tomography scanners (CT units) per 100,000 inhabitants.
  2. Number of Magnetic resonance imaging units (MRI units) per 100,000 inhabitants.

Rationale

The availability of modern medical equipments is an indicator for the delivery of up-to-date health care services. There is no general recommendation which per population ratio for the above listed medical technologies is regarded optimal. However, a high per population ratio may indicate over treatment (overprovision), e.g. the diagnostic measures are applied without indication-based requirement. Due to the high costs of acquisition and operation of these techniques a careful, indication-based use is regarded essential.

Relevant policy areas

  • Sustainable health systems
  • Health inequalities (including accessibility of care)
  • (Planning of) health care resources
  • Health care costs & utilization

67. Hospital in-patient discharges, limited diagnoses


Definition of indicator

The number of hospital in-patient discharges from all hospitals during a given calendar year, expressed per 100,000 population. Calculated and presented by the following 25 categories of the International Shortlist for Hospital Morbidity Tabulation (ISHMT). See ECHI Documentation sheet 67. Hospital in-patient discharges, limited diagnoses (pdf).

Rationale

Hospital in-patient discharges are the most commonly used measure of the utilization of hospital services. Indicators based on hospital discharges from particular diseases can be used as an estimate of the burden of these diseases on health services. Besides, this indicator is often used as a measure for the occurrence of certain diseases in the population and as an indicator of the quality of primary health care (especially with regard to the care for diabetes, asthma and COPD). Finally, this indicator is often used in assessments of costs and efficiency.

Relevant policy areas

  • Health system performance, quality of care, efficiency of care, patient safety
  • (Planning of) health care resources
  • Health care costs & utilization

70. Average length of stay (ALOS), limited diagnoses


Definition of indicator

The average length of stay (ALOS) in days in a hospital per discharged in-patient, i.e. average duration of a single episode of hospitalization. Calculated and presented by the following 25 categories of the International Shortlist for Hospital Morbidity Tabulation (ISHMT).

Rationale

Average length of stay (ALOS) is used in assessment of quality of care, costs and efficiency. The indicator is often used for health planning purposes. But it has to be pointed out that the type of reimbursement system or health insurance plan in a country can play a significant role in the patient length of stay in hospitals.

Relevant policy areas

  • Sustainable health care systems
  • Health system performance, quality of care, efficiency of care, patient safety
  • (Planning of) health care resources
  • Health care costs & utilization

Rationale

The volume of certain surgeries is a function of the prevalence of the underlying diagnosis and the availability of appropriate medical resources. It serves as an indicator for aspects of accessibility, up-to-date quality of care, costs and use.

Relevant policy areas

  • Health inequalities (including accessibility of care)
  • Health system performance, quality of care, efficiency of care
  • (Planning of) health care resources
  • Health care costs and utilization

74. Medicine use, selected groups: self-reported use


Definition

Percentage of population who report having used antibiotics or medication for asthma, COPD, high blood pressure, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, tension/anxiety and depression prescribed by a physician during the past 2 weeks.

Rationale

Indicates aspects of accessibility, up-to-date quality of care, and costs. Large differences between countries may point to under-use as well as over-use. However, a benchmark value cannot be given because several different factors can influence the use of a medicine.

Relevant policy areas

  • Health inequalities (including accessibility of care)
  • Health system performance, quality of care, efficiency of care, patient safety
  • (Preventable) Burden of Disease (BoD)
  • (Planning of) health care resources
  • Health care costs & utilisation
