MHDO Hospital Utilization Dashboard

Title 22, Chapter 1683 section 8712 requires the MHDO to produce a report that compares hospital inpatient and outpatient utilization for all hospitals in the State. These interactive dashboards report on the:

  • Top 15 Most Frequent Diagnostic-Related Groups
    The most common inpatient hospital stays—those that require a patient to be admitted—grouped based on the principal diagnosis assigned for the stay.
  • Top 15 Most Frequent Outpatient Procedures
    The most common outpatient procedures in Maine—those that do not require a patient to be admitted to the hospital.

The reports are based on the MHDO Maine Hospital Inpatient and Outpatient Encounter data. Visit the Methodology Notes to learn more.

Use the tabs, "Top 15 Inpatient DRG's" or "Top 15 Outpatient" at the top of the dashboard to select a report. Filter the results by Time Period and Payer Type, and roll-over the column headers for more detailed information.
