Dear Readers,
Welcome to the April issue of the National Hospital Flash Report. As covered in this report, March had overall stronger performance than March 2018, despite continued downward volume pressures.
In this month’s Spotlight, we examine the 2019 flu season, which—due to a variety of factors—was milder and drove significantly lower volumes into hospitals and ICUs as compared to last year. This is good news from a public health perspective, but also is a factor in decreased volumes, as reported within this issue.
We always appreciate the great feedback from our many readers and are excited to announce one major change for next month that has been highly requested: replacing comparison to budget with a rolling three-month average. We will continue to offer budget comparisons through our chart and data packs for those interested. As always, we are shaping the National Hospital Flash Report to suit the needs of our readership, so please continue to send your input and ideas for the report and for future Spotlights.
Thanks,
Jim Blake
