Dear Colleagues,

HPS was commissioned to study the clinical outcomes differences between covid and non-covid admissions from April 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020.  The study involved 4,756 hospitals and 324,788 patient records that had a covid diagnosis code.

The overwhelming DRG associated with a covid diagnosis is DRG 177 - Respiratory Infections with Major Complications, representing 93% of total inpatient cases.  As a subscriber and/or client of HPS, I'm pleased to share with you the "All-Stars List" of Top 10 hospitals that cared for covid patients (DRG 177) and some interesting findings:

If your hospital or hospital client needs help with price transparency compliance, HPS is here to help.  Feel free to schedule a time to talk on my private calendar:   

We can help you become fully compliant in a short amount of time, and done in such a way that won't break your budget.
