Health Data Check (HDC)

Data from over 120 hospitals and 70 CAHs across the country

Developed by rural hospitals for rural hospitals

Currently includes operational, financial and productivity data.

Project began in 1999


Why did we create our own program?

These Programs have many disadvantages:

  • I’m a CAH, I can’t compare to a 99 bed hospital!
  • I have Long-Term care which changes my dynamics, do any of my peer group?
  • How do their operations allow for an average of 10 hrs per patient day less than mine? Who can I call to get some answers?

Health Data Check
  • As a Network:
    • You can share identities with each other.
    • Make hospital-to-hospital comparisons.
    • Learn directly from regional peers as to how they have obtained certain efficiencies.
    • Utilize current Network-based peer group forums to analyze the data.
