Aggregate Volume of Outpatient Procedures

$179 / year

This dataset includes the aggregate count of selected outpatient procedures performed within the outpatient department from all-payer data. It also contains information regarding outpatient procedures for Cardiovascular, Eye, Gastrointestinal, Genitourinary, Musculoskeletal, Nervous System and Skin, etc.


The Aggregate Volume of Outpatient Procedures performed within the outpatient department e.g outpatient surgery, cath lab, endoscopy from all-payer data. This excludes procedures performed within the emergency department (ED). Hospital outpatient procedures fall into one of seven categories: Cardiovascular, Eye, Gastrointestinal, Genitourinary, Musculoskeletal, Nervous System, Skin.

Medical procedures are moving into outpatient facilities, mainly due to technological advances such as minimally invasive surgical procedures. But value-based care incentives are also playing a role in this trend. Healthcare services can be categorized into outpatient depending on where the procedure is performed and the length of stay. Outpatient care refers to medical services and procedures, typically low-acuity ones that do not require an overnight hospital stay. Although outpatient procedures may not be for medical emergencies and are often less complex than surgeries requiring an overnight hospital stay, it’s still important to do homework to make sure to experience the best care.

The number of outpatient procedures performed in the United States is on the rise. In fact, it has tripled over the past 30 years to more than 54 million a year. That almost equals the number of procedures that require hospital stays. In general, eye and ear surgeries are likely to be outpatient. Obstetrical procedures, on the other hand, are nearly all inpatient. The advantages of outpatient procedure over inpatient surgery include greater convenience and reduced costs.

In this dataset, the Measure Id used is OP-26 that represents the Hospital Outpatient volume data on selected outpatient surgical procedures. The start and end measure dates for the aggregate volume of outpatient procedures data cover the period from 1st January 2017 to 31st December 2017.
