When interpreting New York’s data, it is important to keep in mind that variations in cost may be attributed to many factors. Some of these include overall volume, teaching hospital status, facility specific attributes, geographic region and quality of care provided. Additionally, costs derived from billing data are based upon a ratio that is submitted by a facility to the state and may not necessary reflect a final price of the service delivered. Cost data presented in this dataset was calculated using facility specific 2010 audited RCCs file. The cost data is derived from applying the Ratio of Cost to Charges (RCC) submitted by hospitals on their Institutional Cost Report (ICR) filing to the State Department of Health. Hospital data associated with DRG 564 abortion without D&C, aspiration curettage or hysterotomy and all severity levels has been removed from data file for release. This was done in accordance with protecting confidentiality.
