Mental health (rate per 1,000)
Mental Health is the number of child hospital discharges of mental health diagnoses per 1,000 children under age 18. Mental health diagnoses range from Diagnosis-Related Groups (DRG) 880–887, which also cover all the medical DRGs in the Major Diagnostic Categories 19 – Mental Diseases and Disorders.
Data Source: Data are provided by the Kansas Hospital Association and Kansas Department of Health and Environment. Population estimates are from the U.S. Census Bureau.
Footnotes: Federal Fiscal Year starts October 1. Starting FFY2008, Kansas Hospital Discharge data adopted Medicare Severity DRG, and the corresponding mental health diagnosis group codes are 880-887 when MS-DRG=886 and age is unknown, we count those cases. There has been an increase in children hospitalization for mental health diagnoses, especially for the past three years. In FFY2016, there is a notable jump in mental health discharges based on MS-DRG codes. An analysis found that there are more ICD10 codes (compared to ICD9) related to the same DRG groups indicating more mental diagnoses available, and also KUMC had admitted many more children under those DRGs than in FFY2015. KUMC and Stormont-Vail Health Center saw notable increases of inpatient children with mental health diagnoses in FFY 2017.
