CHIA Releases Interactive Hospital Profiles


DATE : December 12, 2018

The Center for Health Information and Analysis (CHIA) today published a comprehensive analysis of Massachusetts hospital performance for Fiscal Year 2017.     

Massachusetts Hospital Profiles provide information on acute and non-acute hospitals based on hospital characteristics, services, payer mix, utilization trends, cost trends, and financial performance over a five-year period through Fiscal Year 2017. These profiles enable comparison against statewide and peer cohorts for each measure.

For the first time, the profiles are being accompanied by an interactive dashboard that provides an industry overview, while allowing users to filter results by individual hospital, hospital type, and system affiliation where applicable.

Data used for this analysis is sourced from several payer and provider submissions, including Hospital Standardized Financial Statements, Audited Financial Statements, Hospital Cost Reports, Hospital Discharge Data, and Relative Price Data. Quality metrics are from the Commonwealth's Standard Quality Measure Set.
