CAH Financial Indicators Primer and Calculator Resources


The Flex Monitoring Team makes financial indicator data available to every Critical Access Hospital in the United States on an annual basis. These data include financial statement and operating indicator analyses to create numbers for hospitals that have easily interpretable financial significance and allow CAHs to compare their financial performance to peer facilities.

The “primer” documents linked below introduce the financial indicators, explain how each measure is calculated, and offer insights regarding the roles they play in assessing a hospital’s financial health.

The template is an editable PowerPoint file designed to facilitate CAHs presenting their financial indicator data to others. Download & enter your hospital’s data.

The spreadsheet is a calculator which enables hospitals to verify our calculations and also calculate more recent financial indicators using data on hand.
