New data on Massachusetts hospital inpatient discharges

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.
