Data Analytics

writing-104091_1920Data Analytics is a team of analysts that work to take hospital and health care data and turn it into information that can be used for better decision making. The Data Analytics team strives to build knowledge based on financial, utilization, and quality information. This knowledge supports WSHA’s patient safety, policy and advocacy work and helps tackle the challenges that face health care providers and systems in Washington State.


WSHA offers guidance to member hospitals for the submission of financial data as required by WAC statue. Information is submitted through the DATABANK platform. The online portal was developed through the Colorado Hospital Association and revised in Q3 2022 with enhanced validation and reporting features. The centralized location allows for streamline reporting and analysis of hospital utilization and financial data across fourteen states. For Washington, the information collected is aggregated and used by hospital leadership for decision support which compares trends from across the state.
