Hospital Payment Reports
In the 2015 legislative session, the Oregon legislature passed Senate Bill 900, mandating the annual reporting of median payments from commercial insurers to hospitals for common inpatient and outpatient procedures. This report is the first in an annual series using data from Oregon's All Payer All Claims database to provide that information.
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.
Oregon Acute Care Hospitals: Financial and Utilization Trends
Note: There is not a 2014 Q3 Trend Report
Oregon hospitals submit monthly utilization and financial summaries via the electronic DataBank system. The Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems (OAHHS) make these files available to the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) at quarterly intervals.
DataBank files contain monthly, aggregate data for each hospital, including utilization and financial information by primary payer for a wide range of hospital services including acute, sub-acute, swing bed, distinct-part units, and home health care.
Please refer to the Databank Field List for a crosswalk of data fields (variables).
To download the data, click on the file desired, then select either "open" or "save".
If you want more information about hospital data or have technical questions regarding the contents/fields, please contact hdd.Admin@state.or.us.

Community Benefit Reporting
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.
