Introduction: Outcome of care is an important measure of quality in health care and also provides input for healthcare planning. It is an indicator which can be used for comparing performance of various hospital/Institute. Aims: Study intended to analyze the morbidity and mortality pattern among admitted patients with respect to selected hospital indices. Study Settings: All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi. Subjects and Methods: A cross-sectional retrospective study was conducted in 93,223 patients admitted at AIIMS, New Delhi. Information provided in Management Information System (MIS) was used for analysing morbidity as per International Statistical Classification of Diseases (ICD)-10. Results: Diseases related to the genitourinary system (14.25%) and neoplasms (14.18%) were the most common cause of admissions. Overall, predominance of adult age group (61.6%) followed by geriatric age group (20.5%) was observed. Male predominance was observed in diseases related to mental, behavioural, and neurodevelopmental disorders (89.2%). Overall, median length of stay was calculated to be 4 days (mean LOS-7 days), maximum for diseases related to mental, behavioural, and neurodevelopmental disorders (median 13 days). Gross and net death rate for admitted patients was calculated to be 4.3% and 3%, respectively, with maximum rate for diseases related to respiratory system (22.7% and 17%). Conclusions: Analysis of morbidity and mortality in high volume tertiary care centers and segregation of the patients according to their ailment and disease behaviour helps in establishing priorities in healthcare delivery system and thus allocating limited resources accordingly.
