Applied Analytic Methods
HIDI develops and maintains core analytic methodologies for performing risk-adjusted outcomes surveillance, forecasting hospital performance, identifying high-risk patient cohorts and identifying important sources of geographic variation in patient outcomes.
HIDI actively collaborates with academic and institutional partners within and outside MHA to develop, conduct and provide analytic support for grant-funded research studies. Recent focal areas leveraging HIDI data assets and methods include sociodemographic determinants of health outcomes and small area community health measurement.
HIDI provides custom, project-based consultative analytic support to member hospitals and partner associations.
Applied research briefs developed from HIDI data assets targeting relevant topics related to health policy and population health. HIDI HealthStats is published online four times per year.
