Disaggregates total discharges by Hospital Group and public/private status. In HIPE, public/private status relates to whether the patient saw the consultant on a private or public basis. It does not relate to the type of bed occupied nor is it an indicator of possession of private health insurance. For the length of stay analysis, in-patient discharges are disaggregated into sameday and overnight in-patient discharges. Activity in Acute Public Hospitals in Ireland Annual Report, 2017, is a report on in-patient and day patient discharges from acute public hospitals participating in the Hospital In-Patient Enquiry (HIPE) scheme in 2017. Discharge activity is examined by type of patient (day patient/in-patient), admission type (elective/emergency/maternity) and hospital group, and by demographic parameters (such as age and sex). Particular issues of relevance to the Irish health care system covered in the report relate to the composition of discharges by medical card and public/private status. Discharges are also analysed by diagnoses, procedures, major diagnostic categories, and diagnosis related groups. The analysis is presented at the national level. In 2017 HIPE discharges were coded using ICD-10-AM/ACHI/ACS 8th Edition and grouped into AR-DRG Version 8.0.
