PioneerHealth explores market-based reforms to rein in the cost and improve the quality of care in Massachusetts. Our healthcare research is focused on state and federal health care reform, Medicaid, and cost containment.
With so many deaths occurring at long-term care facilities, in Massachusetts and other states, Pioneer has added a new COVID-19 tracker, with data from the state’s weekly Public Health Report. This data includes any nursing home, rehabilitation center or other long-term care facility with 2+ known COVID-19 cases and facility-reported deaths. This tracker includes the number of licensed beds, ranges of case numbers, deaths, and deaths per bed for 320 facilities. Pioneer will update the tracker weekly.
