It provides information on hospital discharges with hospitalisation based on the main diagnosis associated with the discharge. The main objective is to know the demographic and health characteristics of patients who have been admitted to a hospital, as well as to have information at the national, Autonomous Community and province level on the frequency and use of hospital resources in the reference year.
