Healthcare professionals can use this tool to find information about hospital admissions for children with common and complex conditions such as respiratory, gastric and heart conditions, and metabolic disorders and time spent in a hospital.

The data can be compared to highlight variations and trends. This can help with planning, commissioning and improving local acute services for children and help inform decisions about where to target resources and services.

The Disease management information tool (DMIT) is another improving service tool, which provides hospital admissions information for children with asthma, diabetes or epilepsy.
