CHIA’s Newest Report is User-Friendly

The Health Policy Commission relies on the Center for Health Information and Analysis (CHIA) to gather the data it uses in many of its reports. CHIA’s latest report, released last week, provides information on acute and non-acute hospitals based on hospital characteristics, services, payer mix, utilization trends, cost trends, and financial performance over a five-year period through Fiscal Year 2017.  CHIA organized the data in a very user-friendly way, which allows the user to get hospital-specific data as well as information on the hospital sector as a whole. CHIA’s Massachusetts Hospital Profiles page is here.
