In Alaska Hospitals Sep 18 2019

Bartlett Regional Hospital, Juneau, AK is among the top ranked Hospitals for the Highest Revenue Per Day for COPD Hospitalizations in Alaska. Dexur analyzed Oct 2016 to Sep 2019 Medicare claims data to rank hospitals by Revenue per Day for COPD Hospitalizations. Revenue per day is calculated by summing all Medicare revenue and dividing by the total patient days in the hospital. Optimizing for revenue per day can promote the triple aim of better care, better health, and lower cost.
