The Supply Cost Survey

The PECA Supply Cost Survey has been provided as a service to the industry since 1987.   To date, over 500 hospitals have participated in the survey.  The survey compares supply cost adjusted for outpatient volume and acuity (i.e., Medicare Case Mix Index) between hospitals of similar size and/or regional area.  If you would like to participate in the survey, please email us with your replies at or you may attach any text file with your answers as well.  You can expect a response within two to three weeks.  All data will be held in the strictest confidence.
