About the HPL Report
The database includes 125 U.S. health care systems, representing 25 percent of the total U.S. hospital industry. Data collected includes 93,363 non-zero claims, representing more than $13.3 billion of incurred losses. The database contains historical claim information for 10accident years (2002 to 2011). All ASHRM members were invited to participate in the study, which is designed as a hands-on tool to provide health care risk managers with a better understanding of their cost of risk compared to an industry benchmark. Through measurement, analysis and comparison of the claim and exposure data, risk managers develop proactive strategies to reduce risk related costs and ultimately improve outcomes.
