But one of the key “gating” indicators for doing this is a downward trajectory of new cases over a 14-day period.

Community Impact and Benefit Activities of CAHs, Other Rural, and Urban Hospitals, 2018

May 2020

The Flex Monitoring Team has released a new report on the community impact and benefit activities of Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs), rural non-CAHs, and urban hospitals. The report enables State Flex Programs and CAH administrators to compare the community impact and benefit profiles of CAHs nationally to the performance of CAHs in their state.

The report may accessed on the Flex Monitoring Team website. Pages 1-5 provide national data with key findings, and pages 6-95 provide state-specific tables. Shortcut links to each state’s tables are at the bottom of page 5.
