Data & Coding
The AHA Annual Survey is completed online by most U.S. hospitals, and profiles a universe of more than 6,400 hospitals. It has more than 1,000 inputs covering an organization’s structure, service lines, staffing, expenses, physician organization structures, beds and utilization. This data is made available through several electronic and print resources, including the AHA Guide and AHA Healthcare DataViewer and the soon-to-be released AHA eSource.

The National Uniform Billing Committee (NUBC) was brought together by the American Hospital Association (AHA) in 1975 and it includes the participation of all the major national provider and payer organizations.
