Managing two worlds together : Study 1 - report on admissions and costs
This report presents an analysis of two years of data on admissions of Aboriginal people from country South Australia to public hospitals (2006/07 and 2007/08). Data were provided by SA Health from the Integrated South Australian Activity Collection (ISAAC). The analysis of adult admissions focuses on eight health problems that are the most common reasons for admission to city hospitals (278 of 2,714 admissions), while the analysis for Aboriginal children includes 363 admissions for the four most common health problems (72% of all admissions).
