Prior Healthcare Exposure
PRI - FAQ0001

Q: Are prior healthcare admissions to other organisations apart from the reporting organisation covered by the 'Prior Healthcare' question?

A: The prior healthcare question refers specifically to prior admission to the reporting organisation, prior admissions to other healthcare organisations are not covered by this question. Using national hospital admissions data, this is estimated to capture approximately 85% of prior trust interactions.
