Hospital Care Intensity
We have developed a “drill-down” strategy that uses an index to locate states, regions, and hospitals according to their propensity to rely on the acute care hospital in managing chronic illness. We call this metric the hospital care intensity index, or HCI. It reflects both the amount of time spent in hospital and the intensity of physician services delivered in the hospital.
