The New York State Department of Health has released a new web-based tool that will be used to help plan a high-performing, affordable health care system with primary care as the centerpiece.

The new Prevention Quality Indicator (PQI) website (https://apps.nyhealth.gov/statistics/prevention/quality_indicators/) is a publicly accessible tool that identifies hospitalization rates by zip code level for conditions generally considered preventable with access to good primary care. It also reveals health disparities by breaking data down according to patients’ race and ethnicity. The website provides hospital admission rates for four areas and 12 conditions based on measures developed by the federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).
