Hospitalisations are widely understood to be important indicators for monitoring the quality of aged care services, particularly in residential aged care facilities. However, in Australia publicly available information about this has been very limited. To develop a more comprehensive dataset on hospitalisations of people in permanent residential aged care, the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety acquired hospital and emergency department data from every State and Territory for the period 2014/15 to 2018/19. The data was then linked to aged care records acquired from the Australian Government Department of Health.

In this research paper, hospitalisation indicators are also presented for permanent aged care residents aged 65 years or more based on the Registry of Senior Australians (ROSA) Outcome Monitoring System.
