CHIA Reports on the Performance of the Massachusetts Health Care System

The Center for Health Information and Analysis (CHIA) today announced the release of its 2015 Annual Report on the Performance of the Massachusetts Health Care System. The report includes a final calculation of the Commonwealth’s Total Health Care Expenditures for 2013 and an initial calculation for 2014, along with several other key indicators used to assess the performance of the state’s health care system in 2014.

Most notably, Massachusetts saw 4.8% growth in overall Total Health Care Expenditures between 2013 and 2014, exceeding the Commonwealth’s health care cost growth benchmark of 3.6% established in accordance with the state’s 2012 health care cost containment law. Total Health Care Expenditures accounted for $54 billion in spending—$8,010 per capita—by or on behalf of Massachusetts residents for insured health care services.
