CHA DATABANK is an online program available to CHA members. Since 1985, DATABANK has served as a centralized location for the collection and analysis of hospital utilization and financial data.
DATABANK is a secure, web-based program, offering members information on key utilization metrics. Hospital leaders can add this to their decision support tools knowing that the information is comparable for specified peer groups. Standard or customizable reports provide timely snapshots in key information categories.
CHA licenses the program to other hospital associations around the country. Currently, DATABANK is licensed in 14 states. All CHA members have full access to the DATABANK program as long as they submit their utilization and financial data every month. Data from other states is made available for benchmarking within Colorado and across other states. Not only is the data useful to hospitals in monitoring their operational performance, it is an essential tool for CHA to advocate on behalf of the membership.
