The Facilities page contains key metrics all inpatient, outpatient, SNF, and Home Health facilities in the selected region. Then, for each of these facilities listed, we have included a related table of hospice destinations for the source facility. Use the Facilities page to identify candidate facilities for developing strategic partnerships.
There are four tabs at the top of the table. (see screenshot below) The All Facilities tab (far right) will include all facilities included in the other three tabs. Selecting any of the other tabs will limit the facilities in the table to the care setting listed.
The reporting period for this table is one year - the most recent four quarters. For more information on Reporting periods, see Reporting Periods Overview.
See Sorting, Searching and Filtering to become an expert at how to interact with the data in the table.
Home Health Destinations
The Facilities Main Table has two layers of data. The first layer includes a list of facilities in your selected Region. The second layer provides additional information for the facility in the chosen row. To the left of the facility name is a green square with a white triangle. Clicking on this button will open a table of home health "destinations" for the patients treated by the selected facility.
For more information see Patient Sources and Destinations. The content in this dropdown table is identical to the data in the "All" Tab of the Home Health Destinations table on the Facility Detail page for the same selected facility.
Understanding the Data
The table below contains all headers from all tabs. Where the metric is only available in certain tabs, or excluded, the inclusion or exclusion is in the content. The image immediately below (obviously) does not show all headers for all tabs.
|Facility Identification||Name/NPI||Facility name and NPI, as listed in the CMS Provider (NPI) file. An alias can be added to this name that is searchable.|
|County/ZIP||Primary County/ZIP code of the facility, as listed in the NPI file. In this table, counts are for the entire facility regardless of patient residence location.|
|Facility Type||This identification is based on the facility's taxonomy code and institutional type on claims.|
|Patient Counts||Medicare Patients||This is the number of distinct Medicare patients treated by the facility in each row during the one year reporting period.|
|All Patients Entering home health care w/in 30 days of D/C||This column contains the number of distinct Medicare patients treated at the facility listed in each row who received home care within 30 days of discharge.|
Patients Coded for Post Acute Care
Only columns pertinent for the facility type are included.
Patients Coded for Home Health Care
(This metric appears in the final section of the All Facilities Tab)
These columns contain counts of distinct patients coded at discharge with the post-acute care setting listed in each column header. Each of these columns reflects the entry in the box, "Patient Status" on the claim, which indicates where the discharging facility's discharge planning team suggests the patient should go.
This should not be construed as an indication that any kind of referral took place; it merely indicates the actual code at discharge.
This should also not be construed as an indicator of what type of care followed or if any post acute care was provided. For more information on patient flow, navigate to the detail page for the selected facility and examine the table: Post Acute Destinations.
