Revision History

Any change to the objective text, baseline, target, target-setting method or data source since the Healthy People 2020 launch.

Description of Changes Since the Healthy People 2020 Launch: 
IN 2015, the data source was revised from the Chronic Conditions Warehouse, CMS to the National Hospital Discharge Survey (NHDS), CDC/NCHS to be more representative of the population aged 65 and over. NHDS was used in Healthy People 2010 for the comparable objectives on heart failure hospitalizations. Thus, the original baseline was revised from 22.4 to 23.4. The target was adjusted from 20.2 to 21.1 to reflect the revised baseline using the original target-setting method.
