Map the indicators

Through the tool Trova Strutture you can check the most updated values of 55 indicators referring to over 70 planned non-urgent surgical interventions and hospital admissions.

The outputs include the annual number of hospitalizations per institution, for a subset of PNE indicators, as well as for some of the most frequent interventions.

Moreover, some procedures include:

  • the hospital readmission within 30 days due to complication (e.g. exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
  • the second surgery intervention within 6 months (e.g. knee arthroscopy)
  • the revision after 1 year (e.g. hip replacement surgery).
