2008 Hospice Utilization And Cost Data

Attached are the annual summary reports detailing the utilization and cost of hospice care in New York State from January 1, 2008 through December 31, 2008.

There were 49 operational hospices in 2008. Hospice services remain available in every county. This report provides hospice utilization and cost data for 2008 and compares it to utilization and cost data from 2007.

Admissions and Discharges

Figure 1 illustrates a comparative review of 2008 and 2007 admissions versus discharges data. The number of admissions in 2008 was 40,096, which is a 3.7% increase from the 38,661 admissions in 2007. Unduplicated number of patients served for 2008 was 43,747, which is a 2.8% increase from 2007. The total number of discharges for 2008 was 39,711, with 33,336 discharges due to the death of the patient and 6375 representing live discharges.

The majority of deaths (70.2%) occurred in the patient's home, a hospice residence, or a nursing home. An inpatient or respite care setting accounted for 28.5% of deaths, with the remainder (1.3%) occurring in another type of setting.

Eighty (80) AIDS patients received hospice services in 2008, down from 115 AIDS patients in 2007 (-30.4%). This represents only 0.11% of the total number of 'presumed living' AIDS cases in New York State as of December 31, 2008 (excluding inmates).

Length of Stay

Table 1 compares the reported median lengths of stay and the percentage of patients discharged in each length of stay category between 2008 and 2007.

Forty-seven (47) hospices reported a median length of stay in the 8-31 day range versus 48 in 2007. Two (2) hospices reported a median length of stay of 32-90 days in 2008. Two (2) different hospices reported a median length of stay of 32-90 days in 2007.

Table 1. Comparative Length of Stay by Category, 2008 and 2007.

Length of Stay % Patients Discharged % Change # Hospices Reporting Median Lengths of Stay % Change
