Supplementary notes

Number of stays and mean costs are rounded to the nearest hundred. Totals and costs for all conditions, chronic conditions (including the overall diabetes total), and acute conditions are based on Prevention Quality Indicator (PQI) composite measures. For these measures, an inpatient stay that meets the criteria for multiple components of the composite (i.e., multiple conditions) is counted only once. Consistent with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality PQIs, obstetric stays are excluded.

Unlike the other potentially preventable conditions, lower-extremity amputation among patients with diabetes was not identified by principal diagnosis. Thus, it was possible for an inpatient stay to meet the criteria for this condition and one of the other chronic or acute conditions. In most of these cases, the overlap was with another diabetes condition. Because of this overlap, totals and costs for individual diabetes conditions should not be summed to estimate the diabetes group total or aggregate costs.
