In the third year of this project, researchers will continue to analyze trends in patient care and the financing of academic health centers (AHCs) and their impact on mission-related activities. Analyses will be based on hospital discharge data from 10 states, Medicare cost reports, and American Hospital Association survey data from 1988 to 1996.
