Methodology Notes

Principal diagnosis is the diagnosis chiefly responsible for admission of the person to the hospital.

Changes Between HP2010 and HP2020
This objective differs from Healthy People 2010 objective 12-6c in that the principal diagnosis for hospitalization was expanded from congestive heart failure (ICD-9-CM code 428.0) to heart failure (ICD-9-CM code 428).
