HEC Analytics Participating U.S. Institutions

The red markers designate hospitals participating in the HEC Analytics Project.

Thank you for your interest in HEC Analytics. The deidentified data collected by HEC Analytics is available for use by members of the coalitionĀ  to assist in establishing benchmarking criteria for clinical ethics consultation activities. Membership is conferred by submittal of deidentified data from one’s home institution. Currently, the data being collected is comprised of hospital information, FTEs dedicated to clinical ethics, and consult volumes (see webform below for all collected data points).

The purposes, and limitations on use, are agreed upon by the project group. Data may be submitted in two ways: filling out the Excel workbook template (see download link, below right) and returning it via email, or via the web form (below). For single institutions, the web form may be faster, whereas larger systems may want to use the Excel workbook download. A data sharing agreement is available if your institution requires one; please inquire below.

Completed data workbooks, questions, and inquiries about the data sharing agreement may be directed to Stowe Teti at [email protected]. Please join us in this evidence-based project to advance our profession.

Level of Service
Academic Medical Center denotes a facility affiliated with one or more medical schools. Acute Care General Hospitals may offer services comparable to Academic Medical Centers, but are not medical school affiliates. Specialty hospitals include cancer-specific, psychiatric, or an otherwise narrowed-scope of practice provider. Critical access hospitals refer to institutions with a CMS-certified CAH designation indicating the facility is a provider type with its own iMedicare Conditions of Participation (CoP).
Patient Population
Refers to ages of patients treated in the facility.
Hospital Ownership
Please select "religious" for hospitals that consider themselves to be faith-based institutions (does not include hospitals solely for having a religious name).


Overall consults is the number of consults the service performs at the location named in a calendar year (if your program counts "curbside consults," please note that in the notes section at the end of this submission). ICU Consults represent the number of consults requested for a patient while the patient is in an ICU (not all services may collect this data). FTEs includes salaried, hourly, or consulting hours dedicated to clinical ethics and the services needed to support it. This is intended to represent the hospital's investment in clinical ethics consulting and thus may count administrative time in service of that goal, preventative ethics, and research ethics activities, but should not include both parts of split appointments if partial salary comes from a non-hospital source.
