The Healthcare Almanac
Healthcare Almanac website and Healthcare Almanac desktop both have at least seven years of historical data. The data is Medicare Cost Reports submitted to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The data is for Hospitals, SNF, HHA, ESRD and Hospice. In 2013, CMS upgraded the ESRD worksheets to include financial statements. In 2015, the providers Clinic and CMHC were added to Healthcare Almanac desktop.
Healthcare Almanac website has a free section and will have a subscription section in the future. The subscription section is under development and will be complete in late 2017. There will be five groups of information. The groups are KPIs, Financial, Department Cost, Ranking and POS information. Graphs and charts will be available. When the subscription section is complete, we anticipate an annual subscription fee of $299 for one user.
The Healthcare Almanac desktop product is installed from the Installation section of this website. For more information, see the documentation. This documentation shows the design of the software, features of the software and sample reports.
