Medicare Mapper provides geographic insight into the origins and destinations of Medicare hospital admissions. Medicare Mapper provides never-before-seen analytics such as a hospital provider’s national and regional geographic draw, average distances people travel for hospital care, and quantifies the economic value of beneficiaries by where they live - and not simply by where they received their care. Medicare Mapper documents, for the first time, the accumulative hospital resources expended by Medicare in dollars, in-patient days, and admissions, for over 39,000 zip codes across the United States.
Medicare Mapper is based on public information made available from the most recent CMS data (2011) file called the Hospital Service Area File. The file represents every Medicare hospital part “A” admission and identifies the geographic nature of patient origins and medical care destinations.
