  • Description:
    The National Hospital Care Survey (NHCS), conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), collects data on patient care in hospital-based settings to describe patterns of health care delivery and utilization in the United States. Settings currently include inpatient facilities and emergency departments (ED). The survey collects electronic data, Uniform Bill (UB–04) administrative claims or electronic health records, for all encounters in a calendar year from a nationally representative sample of 608 hospitals. Information collected includes diagnoses, procedures, demographics, discharge status, and patient identifiers (e.g., name and date of birth). Eligible hospitals are in the 50 states and the District of Columbia and include noninstitutional and nonfederal hospitals with six or more staffed inpatient beds. Hospitals are currently being received into the survey.

    NHCS results provided on COVID-19 hospital use are from UB–04 administrative claims data from March 18, 2020 through May 25, 2021 from 37 hospitals that submitted inpatient data and 37 hospitals that submitted ED data. The data used in these figures are considered preliminary, and the results may change with subsequent releases. There will be updates every two months to the data file for the remaining months in 2021. The data are not nationally representative. Even though the data are not nationally representative, they can provide insight on the impact of COVID-19 on various types of hospitals throughout the country.

    Results on this page show the percentage of confirmed COVID-19 encounters over time among all ED or inpatient encounters, by urban-rural location of the hospital. Data are presented for each setting (inpatient and ED), by week.
