Inpatient and Outpatient Studies

​​​Inpatient & Outpatient Data

As a service to its members, IHA maintains a statewide database of all inpatient, emergency service and outpatient encounters at Indiana hospitals. All hospitals are required to submit data on a quarterly basis. We share this information with members to help them understand utilization and market share trends and to make projections of future utilization.
