Statistics EESRI

Methodological note

Definition of concepts

Hospital centre
Centre that provides a permanent service, including admission, with medical and nursing care, and that provides beds for continuous attention. Hospital centres are classified according to the type of hospital care given: acute admission, socio-sanitary and psychiatric to which they dedicate 80% or more of their operative beds. If a centre provides more than one type of care, without any of them reaching 80%, then they are classed as mixed hospitals.

Methodological aspects

Statistics on Healthcare Establishments with Internment Schemes (EESRI) was introduced by the Spanish Government's Presidential Order on 18th May 1973 in order to collect information on the structure, facilities and activity of hospital centres. It is a part of both the Generalitat de Catalunya and the Spanish Government's official statistics; for this reason, all centres operating in Spain are obliged to comply. From 1980 onwards, it is the Catalan Ministry of Health's responsibility to collect, confirm and analyse the data from authorised centres in Catalonia.
