eAlert e8ed81e6-f7fa-4419-ac02-72008500e3b1

<p>We invite you to visit <a href="http://www.whynotthebest.org/">WhyNotTheBest.org</a&gt; to access new types of hospital performance data through an improved comparison tool.</p>
<p>Using the tool, you can search for hospitals by name, region, and various characteristics, including health system and hospital referral region; choose from an expanded list of relevant benchmarks; and save your performance reports for future visits. </p>
<p>In addition to the process-of-care "core" measures and patient experience measures, the site now includes new hospital performance data—on readmission rates, mortality rates, and reimbursement, all as reported by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Users of the site can conduct side-by-side comparisons of 4,500 hospitals nationwide, track performance over time, and find improvement tools and case studies of top-performing hospitals.</p>
<p>Thank you for your comments and suggestions on ways to improve <a href="http://www.whynotthebest.org/">WhyNotTheBest.org</a&gt;. If you would like to provide further feedback on the site, please write to <a href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a&gt;. <br /></p>
