With this first publication of the Multi-Source Acute Hospital Financial Dataset, CHIA is providing an integrated dataset that combines available acute hospital financial data from a variety of CHIA data assets. This consolidation of data facilitates the exploration of the available financial information for acute care hospitals in Massachusetts, including cost, revenue, financial performance, payer mix, utilization, and hospital characteristics. Sources include the Hospital Cost Report Data, Hospital Standardized Financial Statements, and the Massachusetts Hospital Profiles.
This dataset contains acute hospital financial data from 2010 to 2018. Depending on the data source and hospital, the year may represent federal fiscal year (October 1-September 30), state fiscal year (July 1-June 30), or calendar year (January 1-December 31).
With the exception of hospital names, which have been standardized to facilitate use of the data, and the addition of several calculated fields, the data is presented as reported by the acute care hospitals.
If you have any questions regarding this dataset, please contact CHIA.
