The specific analyses within this document uses CMS (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services) data. Our data scientists & analysts grouped various medical claims by procedure group & surgery type and used machine-learning algorithms to produce the final statistics.

We recently concluded research on Medicare discharges and readmissions and found that San Mateo County residents had the 2nd lowest inpatient hospitalization rate out of any of the 58 counties in California from October 2015 – September 2016 (most recently available CMS data) with a rate of 16.83 percent.
This is measured as the number of inpatient discharges over total Medicare enrollment within the county and serves to explain the amount of discharges that occur within the county’s Medicare population.
The rate for San Mateo County residents was significantly lower than both the state and national rates, which were 24.37 and 28.8 percent, respectively.
San Mateo County residents also averaged the 3rd lowest readmission rate out of residents from all California counties, with an average all-cause readmission rate of 16.66 percent. This rate is also well below both state and national averages, which are 22.15 and 22.89 percent, respectively.
