Hospital Cost Report Plus: Now in Blackbird

When trying to assess hospital performance in a data desert, what can you use? HCRIS is often the go-to resource, but raw HCRIS data can be challenging to filter, sort, and decipher. Stratasan has taken HCRIS data, along with other relevant data sources, and created a queryable Blackbird dataset—our Hospital Cost Report Plus—enabling easy and flexible analysis of facility performance.

What you can query with this data:

  • Facility information in one place: a source of common truth on hospital data
  • Financial information: cost reporting and revenue

The APCD Payment by CPT Code Report: Now in Canvas

Many planners lack the insight they need to effectively navigate preferred payer negotiations and service line expansion efforts. Often, teams don’t have the critical intelligence they need, which can be derived from all-payer claims data (APCD). This gives payers the upper hand in negotiations since they use hospital claims data to determine reimbursements.

Stratasan’s all-payer claims-based Payment by CPT Code Report allows strategic planning and managed care teams to explore payment data and charge data side by side. This report provides the necessary insights to grow a service profitably and negotiate confidently.
