HHS's Hospital Compare Database Provides Quality of Care Information

From Robert Ambrogi’s LawSites:

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services last week introduced Hospital Compare, a Web site that provides healthcare consumers with information on how well the hospitals in their area care for adult patients with certain medical conditions.

The site is intended to help consumers compare the quality of care hospitals provide. It uses data on hospital patients with heart attacks, heart failures or pneumonia
to show how often hospitals provide various types of recommended care for adults
with these conditions.
