1 A ZIP Code Analysis of Primary Care Need in New York State Prepared by the New York State Area Health Education Center System July 2006

2 A ZIP Code Analysis of Primary Care Need in New York State The New York State Area Health Education Center (AHEC) System July 2006 BACKGROUND New York State has over 19 million people residing in 62 counties. Because of the large populations and land areas of most counties, county-level data frequently mask significant differences between communities. Since there are 1600 ZIP codes in New York State, ZIP code data are more effective in revealing needs at the community level, and should be used wherever available. This report is an initial effort to characterize ZIP codes by their level of primary care need. The report was prepared by the New York State Area Health Education Center (AHEC) System Data Resource Center and is offered as a resource to those working to plan and strengthen the primary care delivery system in New York State. METHOD A scale of primary care need for each ZIP code was developed using the following variables; 1) the percentage of the population below 200% of the federal poverty level; 2) the percentage of births for which prenatal care was received after the six month of pregnancy or not at all; 3) the total preventable hospital (ambulatory care sensitive) admissions per 100,000 people for 19 diagnostic categories; and 4) the population per primary care physician. These variables were weighted equally and, taken together, comprise a measure of socioeconomic status, health service delivery, health status and the health workforce for each ZIP code. Each variable was sorted from lowest to highest values, the lowest reflecting the least need, the highest the most need. Each ZIP code was ranked on the variable with a score of 1 to 5 depending on which 20% group the value of the variable fell. A rank score of 1 reflected the 20% group with the least need; a rank score of 5 reflected the 20% group with the most need. A summary ranking score was developed adding the rank scores for the 4 variables. As a result, the least disadvantaged ZIP codes had a score of 4 (4 times 1), the most disadvantaged had a score of 20 (4 times 5). The summary need scores for the ZIP codes were grouped into rank ranges of 4-9, 10-11, 12-13, 14-15, and and mapped. The statewide map New York State ZIP Codes by Primary Care Need shows ZIP codes by level of need. The number of ZIP codes in each rank range is shown in parentheses in the map legend. The statewide map, New York State Counties by Primary Care Need, follows the same criteria for measuring primary care need except that county-level data instead of ZIP code data are used. 1

3 Regional ZIP Code maps were also prepared for each of the six planning regions established by the Commission on Health Care Facilities in the 21 st Century (Commission 21). The table, Summary Primary Care Need Scores by County and Commission 21Region, shows the number of ZIP codes in each of the above rank groups, by county and each of the Commission 21 regions. The table, Source Data for ZIP Code Primary Care Needs Analysis by Commission 21 Region shows the raw numbers, percentages and rank scores of the variables as well as other information of use in understanding the geographic location and characteristics of the 1594 ZIP codes used in the analysis. This table is available separately from this report. DISCUSSION Three hundred twenty nine ZIP codes had summary scores of 16 to 20. Of these high need ZIP codes 116 were 100 per cent urban; 169 were 100 per cent rural. The remaining 44 ZIP codes contained a mix of urban and rural areas. Almost 5.1 million people live in high need ZIP codes. An additional 3.3 million people live in the next highest need group of ZIP codes i.e. those with summary scores of 14 and 15. A comparison of the county and ZIP code maps shows that counties that appear well off nevertheless contain areas of extreme need, that is, contain one or more ZIP codes with summary scores of 16 or higher. Only two counties, Bronx, and Kings, achieved summary scores of 16 or higher. In other words, county-level aggregate data masked all of the high needs areas in the remaining 55 of the state s counties that had one or more ZIP code areas with a summary score of 16 or higher. In addition, it should be noted that Nurse Practitioners (NPs) and Physician Assistants (PAs) are not included in this analysis. NPs and PAs play a vital role in the delivery of primary care services. There are an estimated 8,200 NPs and 6,500 PAs in direct patient care. Further estimates are that 75% of NPs (6,150) and 50% of PAs (3,250) practice in primary care. As a result, these professions include 9,400 primary care providers. Since there are approximately 19,000 primary care physicians in New York State, NPs and PAs account for one third of the primary care workforce. However, there are no reliable data on the location and practice characteristics of NPs and PAs. Efforts should be undertaken at the state level to address this need. NOTES Data Sources were as follows: poverty Census 2000; prenatal care NYS Department of Health, ; ambulatory care sensitive conditions NYS Department of Health (made available Infoshare); physician data Folio Associates;

4 Poverty rates are calculated by taking the total number of people living in poverty and dividing that figure by the non-institutionalized population, which excludes the military, college students, prison inmates and nursing home residents. The population figure that results when the non-institutional population is excluded is shown in the table as the population denominator used for calculating poverty statistics. Ambulatory care sensitive conditions include the following diagnoses: Pediatric ACS admissions (0-4 yrs), Pediatric bronchitis/asthma (0-4 yrs), Pediatric pneumonias (0-4 yrs), Pediatric otitis media/upper respiratory infection (0-4 yrs), Pediatric gastroenteritis/volume depletion (0-4 yrs), Pediatric convulsions (0-4 yrs), Respiratory infections/inflammations, Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, Adult bronchitis/asthma (18 & over), Adult pneumonias (18 & over), Adult otitis media/uri (18 & over), Congestive heart failure, Hypertension, Renal failure and dialysis, Kidney/urinary tract infection, Diabetes, Cellulitis, Pelvic inflammatory disease. Primary care physicians include the specialties of family practice, general internal medicine, general pediatrics, general practice and obstetrics/gynecology. Although there is debate about whether to include obstetrician/gynecologists as primary care physicians, this analysis follows the federal guidelines for Health Professional Shortage Area designations in this matter. In calculating the population to primary care physician ratio for those ZIP codes without any primary care physicians the ratio of 21,000 to 1 was arbitrarily assigned, which was slightly higher than the highest ratio for a ZIP code with primary care physicians. In reality, the ratio of population to primary care provider in a ZIP code without such providers, is infinity. All ZIP codes without primary care physicians were given a rank score of 5. In calculating the percentile ranges we used raw data figures to the fourth decimal place. However, in the table these numbers are only shown to the first decimal place. Questions and comments are welcome.
