These indicators reflect the number of visits for a physical health service that were provided in an emergency room that did not result in an inpatient stay regardless of the intensity and duration of the visit. Breakdowns are provided by various age groups (<1 year, 1-9 years, 10-19 years and total for all ages).
The rate represents the number of emergency visits divided by 1,000 member months.
The year represents when PPC published the report.
PPC's report, along with source documentation, can be found at http://www.papartnerships.org/work/health/childrens-health-reports.
A weighted average is calculated for this indicator to provide a reflection of the actual rate within each age group.
