Mortality from causes considered amenable to health care (exc ischaemic heart disease) (see “Numerator data” in the indicator specification for definition). As from the November 2005 Compendium release this indicator is one of three indicators that replace the ‘mortality from potentially avoidable causes’ indicator published in previous Compendia.
To help reduce deaths from causes considered amenable to health care. Causes of death are included if there is evidence that they are amenable to healthcare interventions and – given timely, appropriate, and high quality care – death rates should be low among the age groups specified. Healthcare intervention includes preventing disease onset as well as treating disease. Two additional indicators are provided: ‘mortality from causes considered amenable to health care’ and ‘mortality from causes other than those considered amenable to health care’. The difference between amenable and non-amenable causes in their trends over time may provide evidence of the increasing (or decreasing) effectiveness of health care.
