Running Head: Assignment #1 Quantitative Analysis
Introduction
Recent research showed that Clinics charge much less for MRI’s Procedures than an
average Hospital. According to an analysis published by the Healthcare Financial Management
Association, average prices for MRI and CT scans ranged from 70 percent to 149 percent at
higher at hospitals than freestanding centers. Those statistics make you wonder which facility has
highest number of MRI Procedures.
Hypothesis:
The main research question is that: Does a facility being a hospital or clinic influence the number
of MRI Procedures completed. For this research question the hypothesis is: There is no
significant difference in the number of MRI Procedures between clinics and hospitals.
Data
The primary source of data for this research is Minnesota Health Care Cost Information
System (HCCIS) Imaging Procedures, Fiscal Year 2013. The Minnesota Health Care Cost
Information System was established in 1984 to provide accurate and reliable information about
the financial, utilization and service characteristics of hospitals and freestanding outpatient
surgical centers. This data also includes diagnostic imaging facilities. This dataset provides
information on hospital and clinic procedures such as: MRI, PET, PET/CT, CT, SPECT/CT and
SPECT Procedures. This data set included 497 observations for 236 different variables for the
Mid-West area of the USA, for fiscal year 2013.
