Takeaway: Births slowing, although 2Q15 looking better than we initially anticipated.

MATERNITY TRACKER UPDATE |  JULY -1.7%  - maternity tracker July 2015


Our Maternity Tracker continues to update with high frequency.  The data appears to run with a high degree of fidelity with CDC birth data reported through December 2014 with an R-square of 0.89.  


The Maternity Tracker shows a slowing trend across the months of April to July.  The April trend has been updated to cover a significant data gap we uncovered during our validation process.  As a result, April 2015 reversed what we believed previously to be a negative trend to +1.8% nationally.  


MD: We remain short MD, but the maternity trend has not developed to the downside at our previously anticipated pace for 2Q15. Our best estimate for 2Q15 is +0.7% based on the state-weighted trend.  We will be reviewing other data including ACA Tracker data (published shortly) and the Delivery Index from the June OB/GYN Survey (published shortly).


HCA: The state-weighted growth rate for HCA is starting off 2Q15 strong, but has since weakened alongside national trends.  Similar to MD, we'll be rolling up additional data to look at the probability of a positive pre-announcement for 2Q15.  Our preliminary look at Medicaid enrollment, per enrollee spending as well as the JOLTS data released yesterday, suggest the answer is yes, but we'll have more later.  We covered this data yesterday in the studio -->  CLICK HERE
