Resumen

PINHEIRO, Rejane Sobrino; TRAVASSOS, Cláudia; GAMERMAN, Dani  y  CARVALHO, Marília Sá. Urban hospital markets: a methodological approach. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2001, vol.17, n.5, pp. 1111-1121. ISSN 0102-311X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X2001000500013.

This study developed a method for the construction of hospital markets in a metropolitan area, focusing on users of the Unified Health System (SUS) with hip fractures and admitted to municipal hospitals in Rio de Janeiro in 1994-1995. The study used a spatial smoothing technique based on a Kernel (quartic) estimate for constructing areas of care for each hospital and subsequently for hospital markets. Areas of the city were presented where there was a market domain and a secondary domain for treating patients with hip fractures. Hospital market analysis can help health planners organize resources in the health care system.
