Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project Fast Stats Data Update
AHRQ’s Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) has released new information in HCUP Fast Stats. The National Hospital Utilization and Costs topic has been updated to include national statistics through 2018. This topic presents national statistics on inpatient stays—trends, most common diagnoses, and most common operations—and trends in emergency department visits.
The HCUP family of healthcare databases and related software tools and products is made possible by a Federal-State-Industry partnership sponsored by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).
