The Health Care Facilities Tailored Benchmarking (HFTB) Program

You’ve asked, we're delivering.

Valid and reliable health care facility benchmarking data is integral to ensuring you have what you need to make key decisions with confidence. This tailored program will consider essential differentiating factors (e.g., facility type, size, current financial reporting structure) so that benchmarking works for all health care facility types. For example, tailored measurement will account for systematic differences across:

  • Independent stand-alone hospitals 
  • Larger hospital systems and networks 
  • Rural hospitals 
  • Critical Access hospitals 
  • Long Term Care (LTCs) 
  • Stand-alone ED’s, surgery centers

In order for us to create such tailored programming, we need your input at each step of the benchmarking process! If you work within a health care organization in facilities management daily operations, please sign up to join the benchmarking network by clicking the link below.
