New COVID-19 Hospital Data

21-322915-COVID-DHCS-social-media3-hospital-mortality

NCHS has released new National Hospital Care Survey (NHCS) data from 50 hospitals submitting inpatient and 47 hospitals submitting ED Uniform Bill (UB)-04 administrative claims from March 18, 2020–December 29, 2020.  Even though the data are not nationally representative, they can provide insight on the impact of COVID-19 on various types of hospitals throughout the country. This information is not available in other hospital reporting systems.

The NHCS data from these hospitals can show results by a combination of indicators related to COVID-19, such as length of inpatient stay, in-hospital mortality, comorbidities, and intubation or ventilator use. NHCS data allow for reporting on patient conditions and treatments within the hospital over time.
