Leverage Clinical and Resource Utilization Data

The Pediatric Health Information System® (PHIS) comparative database assesses inpatient, ambulatory surgery, ED and observation unit encounters.

The Pediatric Health Information System® (PHIS) is a comparative database with clinical and resource utilization data for inpatient, ambulatory surgery, emergency department (ED) and observation unit encounters for more than 49 children's hospitals. The PHIS database supports a wide range of improvement activities, including: 

  • Clinical effectiveness 
  • Resource utilization
  • Care guideline development 
  • Readmission analysis 
  • Antimicrobial stewardship
  • Physician profiling (OPPE) and more. 

Data from PHIS is useful in identifying areas to improve clinical care, enhance financial outcomes, improve clinical documentation and perform research. 


  • Data: Patient abstract, diagnoses (ICD-9/10), procedures, billed transactions and utilization
  • Patient types: Inpatient, observation, ambulatory surgery and ED
  • Transparency: Unblinded hospital ID with ability to blind local competitors 


PHIS provides executive-level reports to highlight trends based on key children's hospital metrics. Drill-down capability allows for identification of improvement opportunities. PHIS has more than 100 standard reports and ad-hoc reporting capability.
