A request was received for mortality rates for Summary Hospital-level Mortality Indicator (SHMI) diagnosis groups so that the customer could compare these comparing to their renal patient cohort to the overall mortality within each of the diagnosis groups in SHMI.
The Summary Hospital-level Mortality Indicator (SHMI) is the ratio between the actual number of patients who die following hospitalisation at the trust and the number that would be expected to die on the basis of average England figures, given the characteristics of the patients treated there. The SHMI is made up of 142 different diagnosis groups.
In response to your enquiry we have provided the crude mortality rates for each SHMI diagnosis group for discharges in the period January 2018 - December 2018.
These calculations are based on data for all non-specialist acute trusts. Specialist trusts, mental health trusts, community trusts and independent sector providers are excluded from the SHMI. Deaths occurring in hospital and deaths occurring within 30 days (inclusive) of discharge have been included in the calculation of the crude mortality rates.
Please refer to the footnotes when interpreting the data.
