ASC Discharge Data

Instructions on Ordering Ambulatory Surgery Center Discharge Data

The Office of Health Analytics makes a public use dataset available for a variety of purposes. The data has been de-identified using the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act Privacy Rule’s Safe Harbor standard for de-identification. As a result, full 5-digit patient zip code information is not available.

Quarterly and annual data files are available in comma-delimited format, accompanied by documentation for calendar years 2009 through the most recent year available – currently 2013. The cost is $75 per calendar quarter of data or $250 per year. The number of discharge varies by year, generally around 500,000 records.
