Complete Health Indicator Report of Hip Fracture Hospitalization Rate among Older Adults

Definition

The annual hospitalization rate as a result of fractures to the hip among older adults ages 65 years and older per 100,000 population.

Numerator

Number of hospitalizations due to hip fractures among persons ages 65 and older per year

Denominator

Number of persons ages 65 and older in the population

Why Is This Important?

Hip fractures are considered to be one important proxy measure for the presence of osteoporosis, as well as a major consequence of this condition. Hospitalization rates from this cause are monitored in the absence of surveillance sources for osteoporosis.

Healthy People Objective: Reduce hip fractures among older adults

U.S. Target: Females: 741.2 hospitalizations per 100,000 population (age-adjusted); Males: 418.4 hospitalizations per 100,000 population (age-adjusted)
State Target: Females: 601.2 hospitalizations per 100,000 population (age-specific); Males: 310.5 hospitalizations per 100,000 population (age-specific)

Other Objectives

'''Revised Healthy New Jersey 2020 Objective OA-1a''': Reduce the rate (per 100,000 female population) of hip fractures among older women aged 65 years and older to 601.2 among all females, 787.8 among Whites, 217.7 among Blacks, 263.7 among Hispanics, and 195.3 among Asians. '''Revised Healthy New Jersey 2020 Objective OA-1b''': Reduce the rate (per 100,000 male population) of hip fractures among older men aged 65 years and older to 310.5 among all males, 360.9 among Whites, 141.3 among Blacks, 130.5 among Hispanics, and 95.4 among Asians. '''Original Healthy New Jersey 2020 Objective OA-1''': Reduce the rate (per 100,000 population) of hip fractures among older adults aged 65 years and older to 681.7 among females and 351.1 among males.

How Are We Doing?

The revised HNJ2020 targets for all females and all males aged 65 years or over have been met, but rates for some racial/ethnic groups were still above their targets as of 2018.

What Is Being Done?

Each September, the New Jersey Department of Human Services' (NJDHS) Division of Aging Services and a statewide Fall Prevention Coalition coordinate [http://www.state.nj.us/humanservices/doas/services/fallprev/ Fall Prevention Week] to promote awareness of the impact of falls and strategies for reducing risk. Efforts are also in place to provide people at risk for falls with opportunities to learn about prevention and practice healthy behaviors. In collaboration with community partners, the NJDHS Division of Aging Services is building statewide capacity for local delivery of evidence-based fall prevention programs such as A Matter of Balance and Project Healthy Bones. In addition, a one-hour curriculum on fall prevention is available for health educators to use for community education (training required).

Available Services

The NJ Department of Human Services' [http://www.state.nj.us/humanservices/doas/services/ Division of Aging Services] offers numerous services and supports, including *A Matter of Balance *Project Healthy Bones *Fall Prevention

Health Program Information

The NJDHS Division of Aging Services' [http://www.state.nj.us/humanservices/doas/services/healthease/ HealthEASE] program includes program coordination, as well as physical activity, health education, and coordinated screening components designed specifically for adults over the age of sixty. Components and related programs include group exercise, fall prevention education, management of concerns about falling, and bone density testing.
