Abstract

Levels of co-morbid disease established for patients using the Charlson Index in three Auckland public hospitals are similar to those recorded internationally. Co-morbidity is predictive of key health outcomes that are of clinical and managerial significance. Controlling for co-morbidity will be important in making comparisons of the quality of care.
