Hospital Care Starting to Rebound to Pre-COVID-19 Levels

August 7, 2020

According to new research from revenue cycle management firm, TransUnion Health, hospital business volumes recovered significantly in June from their April lows when the COVID-19 pandemic forced most facilities to suspend procedures. According to their recently published study:

  • Outpatient volumes were back up to 93% of their pre-COVID levels during the last week in June.
  • Inpatient volumes were 92% of pre-COVID levels.
  • Emergency department visits were 75% pre-COVID levels.

The study included data from 500 hospitals across the nation. The pre-COVID comparison period was the first eight weeks of the year.  The study reveals the fact that some care is beginning to come back on line, which may restore claims and utilization levels to usual trends. There remains some trepidation in the American population about the safety of engaging with the healthcare system as concerns with the pandemic loom. This is a trend the industry is watching closely. As more data continues to emerge in this area we will circulate it accordingly.
