We have provided a new report to CAH hospitals on the Apprise Secure Portal. The Critical Access Hospital (CAH) DataBook is intended to provide CAHs with a comprehensive and comparative review of:
- Medicare inpatient utilization
- Medicare outpatient utilization
- Financial indicator performance
- Quality performance
In each section, U.S. and State CAH benchmark comparisons are provided. In the Utilization and Financial Indicator performance sections additional comparisons to U.S. and State small rural hospitals are provided. The DataBook combines data from several different sources: CAH quality data posted to the Hospital Compare website from 4Q2012 – 3Q2016; Medicare cost report data from FFYs 2006 ‐ 2015; and Medicare inpatient and outpatient claims data from 2015.
A more comprehensive report description can be found on the Apprise Secure Portal.
