The Center for Health Information and Analysis (CHIA) announces the release of the Annual Massachusetts Acute Hospital and Health System Financial Performance Report for fiscal year (FY) 2020. This report incorporates the financial impact of COVID-19 on hospitals during FY 2020, including the distribution of federal COVID relief funding as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act starting in April 2020, as well as the distribution of state relief funds.
This publication reports on the profitability, liquidity, and solvency of hospital health systems and their affiliated acute hospitals, as well as the profitability of affiliated physician organizations and health plans. It also includes a comparison of the performance of four hospital cohorts (academic medical centers, teaching, community, and community-high public payer) on each metric over a five-year period, fiscal years 2016 through 2020.
CHIA is also releasing with this report an interactive dashboard containing information on five-year trend analyses for each acute hospital and their hospital health system. This report is also accompanied by the databook used to calculate these metrics and a technical appendix.
