This is a comprehensive report on the agency’s reporting and data activities throughout the preceding year.
This report includes statewide data and facility-specific information about the financial health of Pennsylvania’s ambulatory surgery centers. The report covers fiscal year 2015.
More than 21,000 PA residents were admitted five or more times to a PA hospital in fiscal year 2014 – totaling 3% of all hospitalized patients. This brief shows that, while these “super-utilizers” represent a small percent of patients, they account for a disproportionate amount of health care resources. County-specific rates, as well as top reasons for admission, are also provided.
This report provides volume and in-hospital mortality data on pediatric and congenital heart surgeries performed in five children’s hospitals—four in Pennsylvania and one in Delaware—that volunteered to have their data publicly reported. Highlighted are results for nine widely performed surgeries meant to help patients and families make important treatment decisions. The report also shows the total number of operations performed by each hospital and separately reported outcomes for infants less than 31 days old. Data reported is for 2009-2012.
