PA’s “Super-Utilizers” of Hospital Care

PHC4 Research Brief Logo

Almost 22,000 PA residents were admitted five or more times to a PA hospital in 2016. While these “super-utilizers” represent 3% of hospitalized patients, they account for a larger proportion of health care resources, including 10% of hospital payments and 15% of hospital days. County-specific rates are included in the brief as well as top reasons for admission.
