Notes on this indicator: Prevention Quality Indicators (PQIs) are a set of measure that can be used to identify "ambulatory care sensitive conditions," which are conditions for which good outpatient care can potentially prevent the need for hospitalization, complications or more severe disease.  The Acute PQI is a composite representing admissions for dehydration, bacterial pneumonia, and urinary tract infections.  The Chronic PQI is a composite representing admissions for diabetes short-term complications, diabetes long-term complications, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, hypertension, congestive heart failure, angina admissions without a procedure,  uncontrolled diabetes, adult asthma, and lower-extremity amputation among patients with diabetes.  The Overall PQI is a composite representing all of the preceding acute and chronic indicators.
