Hospital Reporting

HOSPITAL QUARTERLY REPORT


One of the overarching goals of Oregon's health system transformation is improving transparency through quality, efficiency, outcome and financial data that is available to the public. Public reporting is a key element in Oregon's work to transform Oregon’s health care system to be more transparent to patients, stakeholders and the public. Similar to the Health System Transformation Quarterly Reports that track Coordinated Care Organizations’ performance, quarterly reporting on Oregon’s acute care hospitals assists policymakers and the public in monitoring the impact of state and federal health reforms on hospital care and financial stability. This report tracks key measures of hospital finances and utilization including profitability, charity care, bad debt, and inpatient, outpatient, and emergency department visits.

AUDITED FINANCIALS & FR-3


Oregon's hospitals are required to provide information on annual financial performance to the Oregon Health Authority. Specifically, hospitals must submit an audited financial statement and FR-3 form for each fiscal year that includes information on revenues, expenses, margins, and uncompensated care.

COMMUNITY BENEFIT REPORTING


Community Benefits Data Reports

Most hospitals in Oregon are recognized as non-profit institutions. To maintain their tax-exempt status, non-profit hospitals are expected to provide measurable benefits to the communities they serve. Community benefits generally are defined as programs or activities that hospitals provide despite a low or negative financial return. Examples of community benefits include providing free or discounted care to persons living in poverty, conducting education or research to promote community health, or donating funds or services to community groups.

In 2007, HB 3290 established Oregon’s community benefit reporting law in order to document the benefits that hospitals provide to their communities. Under this law, each hospital annually submits a form to the Oregon Health Authority that reports the hospital’s cost of providing community benefits in various categories.
