HHS to post comparison of hospitals’ heart attack and heart failure death rates

USA TODAY reports that ” the government plans to post a consumer-friendly comparison of hospitals’ heart attack and heart failure death rates on the Internet.”

Consumers will gain access to the results of the analysis in June, when the agency posts data from July 1, 2005 to June 30, 2006 on a Medicare website called Hospital Compare, hospitalcompare.hhs.gov. Rather than directly posting hospitals’ death rates, the site will simply report whether a hospital performs better, worse or on par with the national average.

Hospital Compare now offers a rundown of hospitals’ diligence in providing the best therapies for heart disease and other conditions, based on the available scientific evidence.
