Highlights

Comparing utilization metrics to pre-COVID baselines, most metrics show a noted change in May throughout the report. There was a slight increase of acute care admissions as it went from 14% below baseline last month to -13% in May, and psychiatric admissions increased from -22% to -21%. Emergency department visits also show a slight increase going from -25% below baseline last month to -20%. Although ambulatory surgeries show great fluctuation over the past months and there was a slight decrease in volumes in May, utilization remained near pre-COVID levels over the last 15 months displayed.
