Health Forum announced today that its data is now available on the Bloomberg Professional service via the Bloomberg Industries' healthcare research portal. Health Forum data is based on American Hospital Association (AHA) proprietary surveys and includes detailed hospital and system information.

Together, this information is used to advance health care research by academic institutions, government agencies, health policy and research organizations. The Bloomberg Professional service provides critical, real-time financial information, data and analytics to over 315,000 subscribers globally.
"We are proud to be part of Bloomberg’s comprehensive health care dashboard, which extends our proprietary health care information into the financial market that Bloomberg serves," said Neil Jesuele, president of Health Forum. "The addition of AHA data to the Bloomberg Professional service will provide today's business and financial leaders access to the most trusted source of hospital data."
