Interactive Data and Analysis

Several of CHIA’s recent reports include interactive online tools to allow researchers to perform customizable graphical analysis regarding the Massachusetts health care system.

To better understand provider price variation in Massachusetts, CHIA displays hospital, hospital system, and hospital type relative price (RP) data within a customizable Tableau dashboard. Our Hospital Profiles dashboard shows descriptive and comparative information about each hospital's medical services, payer mix, utilization trends, cost trends, financial performance, and quality.

Updated August 2019, Enrollment Trends gives informative insights into health coverage in Massachusetts. Our recent Focus on Provider Quality provides a range of information about medication safety, maternity-related care, potentially preventable hospital admissions, effective care processes, incidence of health care-associated infections and both hospital and primary care patient experiences.

CHIA's Hospital-Specific Readmissions Profiles takes a deeper look into each Massachusetts hospital's readmissions data, as well as allowing for comparisons between facilities and at the statewide level.

An interactive Massachusetts map identifies geographical areas from which hospitals and hospital systems draw their patients by illustrating the distribution of hospital inpatient discharges.

CHIA looks to continue to use online tools in its future reporting to help policymakers, insurers, health care providers, employers, and researchers more easily explore CHIA’s comprehensive data resources.  The interactive applications outlined below promote transparency and a better understanding of the Massachusetts health care system.
