The Facilities Analyze table allows you to find facilities of numerous types in your available markets. The following tools will assist you in finding physicians who match criteria of your choice:
- Filters - The filters allow you to narrow the complete list of facilities to specific groups based on criteria you choose.
- Column customization
- Click on and you can now select which metrics are shown in the table from a list of most facility metrics available. See below.
- You can click the headers of the columns and drag them to a new position in the table to customize which columns are visible without scrolling.
- Destination summary - Click on the top display a list of the top five hospice destinations for the selected facility.
- Simple Sort - You can sort the columns by clicking on the header of each column. If the simple sort toggle is on, you will only be able to sort by one column. If the toggle is off, you will be able to perform a hierarchical sort. Choose the columns in the order you want them to be sorted.
|From this image you can see that we have chosen to sort on two columns, and the sort type is indicated by the arrows (ascending or descending) and the order of the sort.|
This image does not include all possible columns - also, the columns have been narrowed to fit more columns into the image.
When you click on the metrics selection icon, you will be able to select which metrics are displayed in the Explore Table.
The metrics selection tool allows you to choose which columns appear in the explore table.
Click on any box to add or remove that metric from the table.
Metrics with a check in the box will appear in the table.
Click on "Reset" to set the metrics selected to the default settings.
When you have chosen the metrics you want to include in the table, click on "apply" which will close this tool.
The metrics you choose with this tool will also set which metrics are included in table exports.
You can select all available metrics and they will be displayed in the Explore Table. This will increase the width of the table on the page which will then require you to scroll left and right to see the entire table, OR, you will need to change the page zoom to accommodate the increased width.
When you populate this table with a group of desired providers, you can then limit the metrics that are most important for comparing those providers.
Understanding the Metrics
|Name, NPI||Facility name and NPI, as listed in the CMS Provider (NPI) file. An alias can be added to this name that is searchable throughout Marketscape.|
|County, ZIP, City, State||Primary County, ZIP code, city, and State of the facility, as listed in the CMS Provider NPI file.|
The facility type describes the taxonomy code listed for this NPI in the CMS Provider NPI file.
To see all possible facility types, open the Facility type filter.
The Claim type is determined by the setting from which the claim was submitted (INP, OUTP, SNF, HHA, HOS, and others)
A hospital will have INP and OUTP, Skilled Nursing Facilities will have SNF and OUTP, Home Health should only have HHA, and hospices should only have HOS. Exceptions are possible, but are possibly coding errors.
|Star Rating||CMS created the five-star quality rating system to measure the experiences Medicare beneficiaries have with their health plan and health care system on a scale of 1 to 5 stars, with 5 being the highest quality.|
|Medicare Patients||Number of distinct Medicare patients treated by the facility in each row during the one-year reporting period.|
|Total Hospice Patients||This metric is the count of distinct patients admitted to hospice within 30 days of discharge from the facility listed in each row.|
Percentage of stays that received hospice care within 30 days of discharge from the listed facility. We do not show the metrics used for this calculation in Marketscape. The calculation is = Stays admitted to hospice/Stays.
|Patients Coded for Hospice Care||This metric is the count of patients discharged from the facility in each row with a status code in the discharge claim that indicates a need for Hospice.|
|Patients Coded for Home Health Care||This number is the count of patients discharged from the facility in each row with a status code in the discharge claim that indicates a need for Home Health.|
|Patients Coded for SNF Care||This number is the count of patients discharged from the facility in each row with a status code in the discharge claim that indicates a need for SNF.|
|Patients Coded for Home or Self Care (no PAC)||This number is the count of patients discharged from the facility in each row with a status code in the discharge claim that indicates no need for post-acute care.|
|Hospice Discharge Non-Adherance %||
Percentage of patients discharged from care at this facility with a discharge code that indicates a need for Hospice care who did not go into Hospice care within 30 days of discharge from this facility.
|Hospice ALOS (days)||
The average number of days patients from this facility spent in any hospice, for patients discharged from Hospice during the most recent four quarters and treated by this facility within 30 days prior to Hospice admission.
|Readmit OR Hospitalization + 30 days Rate||
This column can include one of two different metrics, depending on the criteria below (in italics):
Readmit Rate - If the facility is hospital inpatient - The metric will be the percent of distinct patients re-admitted to any inpatient facility within 30 days of discharge from the hospital listed in the row during the one year reporting period.
Hospitalization Rate: + 30 - If the facility is any type other than a hospital - The metric will be the percentage of patients admitted to the facility listed in the row who were admitted to an inpatient setting during their stay or within 30 days of Discharge.
For more information, see Readmission and Hospitalization
|Risk Score and Risk Category||
These two metrics reflect the Average Hierarchical Condition Category (HCC) Risk Score for the given NPI and a categorization of this NPI's Risk Score in comparison to all NPI's of this type.
For more information, see Risk Scores and HCC.
