This Data Summary Report presents state and national median values of the 23 financial indicators included in the Critical Access Hospital Measurement and Performance Assessment System (CAHMPAS). As part of ongoing work of the Flex Monitoring Team, these indicators were specifically designed to capture the financial performance of CAHs.
The indicators fall under six domains: profitability, liquidity, capital structure, revenue, cost, and utilization. The report includes a brief description of the domains and the indicators along with a table that allows comparison across states. The Appendix to this report includes the median values for each indicator by state, enabling the values for all indicators for one state to be viewed on a single page. More detailed information about the definition and interpretation of the indicators can be found in the document Briefing Paper No. 7. Financial Indicators for Critical Access Hospitals May 2005.
