        • abstract: This dataset contains case counts of asthma (ICD-9-CM 493.0-493.92 and ICD-10-CM J45) inpatient hospitalizations among New Mexico residents for 1999 - 2016. ICD-10-CM diagnoses codes became mandatory for Uniform Billing 2004 (UB-04) in October of 2015. The hospital information comes from UB-04. An asthma hospitalization is an admission to the hospital due to asthma as a primary (first-listed) diagnosis. Data have been de-identified to protect patient confidentiality. These data are stratified by year of admission, county of residence, age group, and sex.
        • purpose: To provide data for the New Mexico Environmental Public Health Tracking (EPHT) Network consistent with the guidance for creating the asthma inpatient hospitalization Nationally Consistent Data and Measures (NCDMs). This dataset can be used to calculate asthma hospitalization measures, including 1) the number of hospitalization for asthma; 2) crude rate of hospitalization for asthma per 10,000 population; 3) age-specific rate of hospitalization for asthma per 10,000 population; 4) age-adjusted rate of hospitalization for asthma per 10,000 population (adjusted by the direct method to the 2000 US standard population) and 5) Average, minimum and maximum number of ED visits for asthma per month.
        • supplinf: The EPHT NCDMs are based on date of admission because of the goal of relating a hospitalization event with an environmental event. These Hospital Inpatient Discharge Data (HIDD) collected by the New Mexico Department of Health (DOH) include inpatient hospitalizations of individuals who are discharged from non-federal hospitals (using their admission date). Therefore these data do not include hospitalizations from Veterans Affairs or Indian Health Service hospitals. The DOH does not systematically collect hospitalizations among New Mexico residents that occur out-of-state. All admissions reported are by county of patient's residence and not necessarily the county where the hospitalizations occurred. These data may include some transfers between hospitals for the same individual for the same asthma event. Variations in the number of transfers or readmissions for the same asthma event may vary by geographic area and affect calculated rate. This could be of importance for the southern and south eastern counties of NM, where residents often seek care in Texas. In these counties it is possible that this leads to artificially low numbers of admissions. Data have been de-identified to protect patient confidentiality. Population data used to calculate rates are annual estimates produced by the University of New Mexico Institute for Geospatial and Population Studies (GPS). They are the official estimates and projections used in New Mexico state government.
