– Time taken for patients to get a bed from Emergency Department after Doctor’s decision. (Lower the number, better it is)
β€’ Overall Hospital Dimension Score
– Overall quality score of provider, includes metrics like cleanliness, quietness, responsiveness of staff etc. (Higher the number, better it is)
β€’ Percent of DRG codes where Provider has minimum charges in the HRR
– If a provider services 100 DRG codes and has the minimum charge in 70 of those (within their HRR) then this metric would be 70%
β€’ Percent of discharges by a particular Provider in a HRR-DRG Code
– If there are 100 discharges in a HRR for DRG Code 948, and Provider B has 55 discharges for DRG 948 then this metric would be 55% for Provider B
β€’ Provider’s maximum share of discharges amongst all the DRG codes it services
– In a HRR: If Provider A has 20% of the discharges in DRG 267; 30% of discharges in DRG 378 and 45% of discharges in DRG 755 then this metric would be 45% for Provider A
β€’ HRR adjusted charges
– For DRG code 948, a HRR has 4 providers with the following charges (A: $120, B: $200, C: $150, D: $180) then the HRR adjusted charges are normalized as follows: (A: $100, B: $167([$200/$120] * 100), C: $125([$200/$120] * 100), D: $150([$180/$120] * 100)
