STATE HEALTH SERVICES AND FACILITIES PLAN

The Health Services and Facilities Plan is a guiding document for both the Certificate of Need (CON) process and health care services planning in Hawaii.  SHPDA serves as staff to the Statewide Health Coordinating Council in the preparation and revision of the plan.  The plan addresses the health care needs of the State, including inpatient care, health care facilities, and special needs.   The plan depicts the most economical and efficient system of care commensurate with adequate quality of care and includes standards for utilization of health care facilities and major medical equipment.

SHPDA’S HEALTH CARE UTILIZATION REPORTS

Each year, SHPDA collects health care utilization data from providers across the State and produces an annual Utilization Report.  The report is used as a tool to assess health care services utilization, trends, needs, and costs by CON applicants, providers, health market analysts, economists, researchers, etc.  For copies of current and past SHPDA’s Health Care Utilization Reports, please click here.

The Utilization Report includes data such as:

  • Hawaii's hospitals' inpatient bed capacities
