        • DENOMINATOR DEFINITION:
        • 100% of Medicare enrollees age 65-99 who died during the measurement year with full Part A entitlement and no HMO enrollment during the measurement period. Age, gender, race, and eligibility are determined using the Denominator file.

        • NUMERATOR DEFINITION:
        • Number of enrollees with one or more hospital admissions within six months of the death date in the MedPAR file. ICU admission is determined by the presence of an ICU day indicator in the MedPAR claim: ICARECNT (intensive care day count), CRNRYDAY (coronary care day count).

        • ADJUSTMENTS:
        • Rates are adjusted for age, sex and race using the indirect method, using the U.S. Medicare decedent population as the standard. Gender-specific rates are age and race adjusted; race-specific rates are age and sex adjusted.
