Statewide Delivery Stays Percent of Gestation Stages with or without Opioid Use 2016-2017 PA Health Care Cost Containment Council (PHC4)

Percent of Pennsylvania delivery hospital stays, categorized by the presence or absence of opioid use, that had reached specified gestation stages for the delivery stay.

Opioid use, or opioid use disorder, is a diagnosis indicating opioid dependence, abuse, or use. Some opioid drugs may be prescribed as part of medication-assisted treatment to relieve withdrawal symptoms and psychological cravings often associated with opioid use disorders. Opioid use during pregnancy can lead to Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) for newborns.

Gestation stages specify the number of weeks of gestation at the time of the delivery stay. “Premature” indicates that the delivery stay is at 36 weeks or less of gestation, “Early Term” indicates that the delivery stay is at 37-38 weeks of gestation, and “Full Term or Longer” indicates that the delivery stay is at 39 weeks of gestation or longer.

This analysis is restricted to delivery hospital stays for Pennsylvania-state residents who were hospitalized in Pennsylvania hospitals.


PHC4’s database contains statewide hospital discharge data submitted to PHC4 by Pennsylvania hospitals. Every reasonable effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information obtained from the Uniform Claims and Billing Form (UB-82/92/04) data elements. Computer collection edits and validation edits provide opportunity to correct specific errors that may have occurred prior to, during or after submission of data. The ultimate responsibility for data accuracy lies with individual providers.

PHC4 agents and staff make no representation, guarantee, or warranty, expressed or implied that the data received from the hospitals are error-free, or that the use of this data will prevent differences of opinion or disputes with those who use published reports or purchased data.
