The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has launched a project to measure the impact of the Affordable Care Act on hospitals.
Working with 24 state hospital associations, the foundation’s Hospital ACA Monitoring Project will collect quarterly hospital data on admissions, emergency room visits, and selected diagnoses and procedures. The project will collect data from different types of hospitals with different payer mixes.
According to the foundation, the project “is designed to shed light on some of the effects of health reform on hospitals and provide extremely timely data to researchers, policymakers and hospital leaders.”
