National Audit of Hospital Mortality Summary Report 2020
This is the sixth Summary Report for the National Audit of Hospital Mortality (NAHM). NAHM monitors the outcomes of patients admitted to hospital for treatment in 44 participating acute hospitals. The data used are extracted from information routinely collected from medical charts of patients who are admitted to hospital for treatment. The data are managed by the Healthcare Pricing Office and coded by trained coders in each hospital and sent to the HSE to be applied to the web-based tool, NQAIS NAHM. Each of the 44 hospitals can view their data using the web-based tool all year round, not just for the annual report, and for all conditions patients may have, not just the six we focus on for the annual report. Hospital’s data cannot be compared to each other, they are compared to the national average for a condition. Hospitals can produce reports from the web-based tool for presentation to hospital management.
