CAHMPAS: Critical Access Hospital Measurement and Performance Assessment System

The Critical Access Hospital Measurement and Performance Assessment System makes it easy for CAH executives, State Flex Coordinators, and Federal staff to explore the financial, quality, and community-benefit performance of Critical Access Hospitals.  CAHMPAS provides graphs and data, which allow you to compare CAH performance for various measures across user-defined groups: by location, net patient revenue, or other factors. We encourage you to explore the nuances of the data and develop strategies to address CAH performance. We hope that this tool will help you make the most relevant performance comparisons, collaborate with peers, and effectively allocate funding.
