CBISA Association Rollup™ allows the state hospital association to request data from each hospital, review the data and make edits as necessary, then print reports for individual or multi-facility reports.
Each hospital can belong to a region, entity, or any number of groups as defined by the Association Administrator.
Data can be requested and received at any time, and reports can be run as needed.
CBISA Online™ is the premier program for collecting, tracking, and reporting community benefit information. This comprehensive software allows you to collect quantifiable information (programs/activities, statistical occurrences, financial services including traditional charity care and government sponsored programs), qualitative information (narratives and stories surrounding community benefit), and program evaluations.
With ten user permission levels and the ability to customize the software through various defaults, CBISA Online™ is the perfect tool for single facilities or large health systems with many facilities.
CBISA Survey™ is an abbreviated data entry software perfect for hospitals with limited community benefit tracking and reporting needs.
CBISA Survey™ still has the “look and feel” of CBISA Online™ and collects summary information in three modules: Activities/Occurrences, Financial Services, and Leadership Journal.
The CBISA Survey™ program can easily be upgraded to a full version of CBISA Online™ with no data loss.
