CHIA examines trends in hospital performance and utilization via two new publications: Hospital Profiles and a Patient Origins Map. Hospital Profiles provides information on hospital services, payer mix, utilization, and financial performance. The Patient Origins Map illustrates the distribution of inpatient discharges by patient zip code for each Massachusetts hospital system.
The Massachusetts Health Insurance Survey (MHIS) provides information on health insurance coverage, health care access and use, and health care affordability for Massachusetts residents as part of CHIA’s Continuing Study on Insurance Coverage, Underinsurance and Uninsurance.
The 2017 Annual Report on the Performance of the Massachusetts Health Care System presents a calculation of the Commonwealth's Total Health Care Expenditures as well as additional indicators used to assess the performance of the state's health care system.
CHIA reports annually and quarterly on the financial performance of Massachusetts acute care hospitals. As hospitals and their respective health systems evolve, CHIA has added financial information on hospital health systems, affiliated physician organizations, and affiliated health plan in its publications.
CHIA has produced several interactive maps of Massachusetts health care data. These maps allow researchers to better understand variations in health care spending and utilization by displaying recent data on a town-by-town or regional basis.
