Analyzing Financial and Operational Performance of CAHs

Research Center(s): North Carolina
Principal Investigator: Mark Holmes
Contact Person: George Pink

The purpose of the CAH Financial Indicators Report is to provide CAH administrators and boards with comprehensive information about the financial performance and condition of their hospitals. The report includes 20 key financial indicators that are compared to benchmarks established specifically for CAHs and relative performance of other similar types of CAHs. This continuing project is based on work that has been ongoing under the current cooperative agreement. We also propose to extend this work by adding a survey of state Flex Coordinators to describe activities being conducted to improve the financial performance of CAHs in their states.

Using data from CMS Medicare Cost Reports, the primary purpose of the CAH Financial Indicators Report is to provide CAH administrators with comparative financial indicators. The data in this report can be used to assess financial performance across time and in relation to other similar institutions.
