What does this show?
An overview of hospital care claim volume and charges split by hospital, insurance provider, physician specialty and patient age. Extra detail covering admission type, discharge status, diagnostic category, diagnostic group and individual physicians can be accessed via a hyperlink.
Why does it matter?
For resource and capacity planning it's important to know what volume of patients are presenting at each hospital and for what type of treatment. The Pareto chart in this dashboard shows that seven specialties provided 80% of claims for this cohort of hospitals so those specialties need to be well supported.
The willingness of insurers to cover every treatment provided by the hospital varies between providers so it's interesting to know the proportion of claims each insurer covers.
