Hospital Utilization Reports are prepared by Apprise Health Insights on a quarterly basis from information reported monthly by Oregon hospitals to the Oregon DATABANK Program. The information is aggregated into simple comparative reports that compare the most recent quarter utilization statistics to the same quarter in the previous year. Report categories include Discharges, Patient Days, Occupancy %, Average Length of Stay, Inpatient Surgeries, Births, Emergency Room Visits, Ambulatory Surgery Visits, Observation Visits, Home Health Visits and Total Outpatient Visits.
Historically these reports were produced only for the Portland metropolitan area, and were distributed in hardcopy format. With the advent of the DATABANK web site in 1999 a decision was made to expand the reports statewide, and to provide them in spreadsheet format to make them more convenient to use. These reports are intended for the use of Oregon hospitals, and are provided free of charge as a membership service of the Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems.
