Eighth edition of this report on Health Outcome Indicators in Private Healthcare prepared by Antares Consulting for IDIS (Institute for the Development and Integration of Healthcare), corresponding to 2019 data.
With the RESA 2019 Repport, the Spanish private healthcare sector once again presents the results of its demanding quality policies aimed at guaranteeing accessibility, resolution, efficiency and good results.
This year, 525 hospitals and private healthcare centres are contributing their data on a voluntary basis to contribute to an exercise in transparency that is rarely seen. Of these, 325 have participated by providing data for the RESA 2019 Study, and 200 fertility centres have contributed their information through the study by the Spanish Fertility Society.
This broad participation, which has been repeated year after year, has made it possible to carry out one of the most important studies on quality indicators in the health sector in the country. The study is based on data from more than:
– 1.3 million hospital discharges.
– 2.8 million outpatient consultations.
– 4.5 million hospital emergency visits
– 850,000 surgical operations.
– 44,000 births.
– 355,000 mammographies, 849,000 MRIs and 537,000 CT scans.
– 87,500 cycles of fertility treatments.
– Almost 9,000 patients on hemodialysis.
These volumes are comparable to those of the healthcare activity of the largest autonomous communities in Spain, such as Andalusia, Catalonia or Madrid, and higher than those of the medium and small autonomous communities.
As a whole, the activity included in the RESA report constitutes
– 71% of the private activity of hospitalisation discharges and 23% of the total discharges from public and private hospitals in the country.
– 44.3% of the private emergency services and 15.4% of the total in Spain.
– 39.1% of private surgical operations and 16.5% of the total.
These large volumes guarantee a wide representation of private activity in all its aspects and also allow the results to be compared with other observatories that publish quality indicators for health centres.
