Data Note(s)


FLHealthCharts.gov is provided by the Florida Department of Health, Division of Public Health Statistics and Performance Management.

  • Hospitalizations from Ambulatory Care Sensitive Conditions (ACSCs) are hospital admissions that might have been avoided through access to high-quality outpatient care and are a key tool for community health needs assessments.

  • Data Source: Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA). Click to view Ambulatory Care Sensitive Conditions Codes

  • To keep abreast of medical knowledge, the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) is revised periodically. Large increases or decreases in hospitalizations are typically indicative of such changes. Effective October 1, 2015, the ICD 9th Revision Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) transitioned to ICD 10th Revision Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM). Hospitalization data before October 2015 use ICD-9-CM; starting in October 2015, hospitalization data use ICD-10-CM. Consequently increases or decreases starting in 2015 may not be due to changes in disease trends but due to changes in coding.

  • Population:The population data for 2001-2010, along with rates affected by the population data, has been updated on FLHealthCHARTS. Following a census, it is customary to revise population projections for the intercensal years based on information from the latest census. Revising the population data from what was predicted to actual estimates ensures accurate accounting of the racial, ethnic, and gender distribution of the population. These changes affect the population data and rates calculated for your community.

  • Some counts and conditions using ICD-9-CM diagnostic codes may differ from those published previously on FLHealthCHARTS. In July 2016, a revised, final version of the diagnostic codes for Ambulatory Care Sensitive Conditions was obtained directly from Dr. John Billings, Director, Health Policy and Management Program, Robert F. Wagner School of Public Service, New York University.

  • Data are suppressed in instances in which a county has between 1 and 4 reported hospitalizations for a particular time period. Rates are suppressed in these instances as well.
