Published: 22 November 2016
Hospital Standardised Mortality Ratios
Information Services Division (ISD) has produced quarterly hospital standardised mortality ratios (HSMR) for all Scottish hospitals participating in the Scottish Patient Safety Programme (SPSP) since December 2009; the programs current aim is to reduce hospital mortality by 10% by December 2018.
The model was re-based in 2016, ensuring that the predicted mortality used within the HSMR calculation is based on up to date data. This is the second release using the updated base period and is not comparable to releases prior to August 2016. For more information see Guidance and FAQs page.
An interactive dashboard has also been produced to compliment the routine publication report.
