In Georgia Hospitals Nov 21 2019

South Georgia Medical Center, Valdosta, GA is among the top ranked Hospitals for the Highest Revenue Per Day for Coronary Bypass Surgeries in Georgia. Dexur analyzed Jan 2016 to Dec 2018 Medicare claims data to rank hospitals by Revenue per Day for Coronary Bypass Surgeries. 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. Since, revenue from Medicare is risk adjusted at the DRG level, fewer days in the hospital for a fixed DRG payment can lead to lower cost to the hospital (higher revenue per day) and better patient experience (fewer patient-days in hospital).
