200 Hospital Benchmarks

Becker’s Hospital Review has updated and expanded its earlier 40 Hospital Benchmarks article to provide 200 national benchmarks for hospitals related to quality processes and outcomes, the patient experience, and financial and operational performance. Among the new indicators added are census disparity index benchmarks used for decision making on patient load measurement, budgeting, and projection of staffing needs. Also added are admissions, discharges, and transfers index benchmarks indicating the proportion of a hospital unit’s patient population turnover during the day, evening and night shifts, impacting patient flow. The benchmarks have been compiled from both government and commercial sources.
