The Victorian Ambulatory Care Sensitive Conditions (ACSCs) are conditions for which hospitalisation is thought to be avoidable with the application of public health interventions and early disease management, usually delivered in an ambulatory setting such as primary care.

High rates of hospital admissions for ACSCs may provide indirect evidence of problems with patient access to primary healthcare, inadequate skills and resources, or disconnection with specialist services.
