Flex Program Resources: Inpatient and Outpatient Measure Comparison Template

Stratis Health

This Excel template can be used by Flex Programs to produce comparison graphs for critical access hospitals (CAH) that displays hospital and state performance on Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) Inpatient (IP) and Outpatient (OP) measures. By using this template, Flex Programs can easily use data from the IP and OP data files received from the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) each quarter to produce graphs for inclusion in presentations or reports for CAHs in their state.
