BHN is in the process of diving into all of the useful health data out there. And, we’ve not caught up with the Massachusetts health data project in a while.
So, look for upcoming reports and tools In the meantime, we note that:
The Massachusetts Hospital Inpatient Discharge database for fiscal year 2012 ( October 2011 through September 2012 ) is available now from the Consortium. This year’s database contains de-identified data on over 829,000 hospital discharges from 77 Massachusetts Hospitals with over $20 billion in charges.
