        • FOOTNOTES:
        • Bed inputs per 1,000 decedents are calculated by dividing the relevant day rate per decedent during the last two years of life by 365 to determine the number of bed-years used by members of the cohort during their last two years of life. The result is then multiplied by 1,000.

The study population includes beneficiaries with one of nine chronic conditions who were enrolled in traditional (fee-for-service) Medicare and died during the measurement period. To allow for two years of follow-back for all patients, the population is restricted to those whose age on the date of death was 67 to 99 years, and to those having full Part A and Part B entitlement throughout the last two years of life. Persons enrolled in managed care organizations were excluded from the analysis. For the hospital-specific analyses, patients had to be hospitalized for chronic illness at least once during their last two years of life to be included. For regional analyses, all patients diagnosed with a chronic illness were included.

        • ADJUSTMENTS:
        • Rates are adjusted for age, sex, race, primary chronic condition, and the presence of more than one chronic condition using ordinary least squares regression.
