Ngā Pūnaha Hauora Tūtohu: Health system indicators (50+ years)

These indicators are measures of the performance of the health system.

The Ministry of Health has recently defined amenable mortality as ‘deaths from those conditions for which variation in mortality rates (over time and across populations) reflects variation in the coverage and quality of health care (preventative or therapeutic services) delivered to individuals’ (Ministry of Health 2010c). Amenable mortality includes deaths (as defined above) occurring in those less than 75 years of age.
