Statistics for 2016 hospital inpatient diagnoses and procedures are now available in AHRQ’s Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) Fast Stats—Trends in Inpatient Stays. The data allow researchers, policymakers and others to examine national trends on inpatient utilization and costs across a variety of patient characteristics. The data also are available on HCUPnet, an online query system that is available at no cost. Other enhancements to HCUPnet include graphs of two-way statistics, inclusion and refinement of ICD-10 queries, and aggregation of community-level statistical tables by 3-year increments.
