MyHospitals Web Site Launched

The Australian Ministry for Health and Ageing has launched MyHospitals, a new Web site that offers information about the services and performance of 759 public and 153 private hospitals. For the first time, Australian Health Minister Nicola Roxon said, patients can compare their local hospital with the national average on quality measures, such as wait times for elective surgeries and emergency department care. Additionally, patients can find out information on the number of beds and admissions, as well as hospital accreditation and the types of specialized services available, such as an obstetrics or intensive care. Users can search MyHospitals by hospital name and view all facilities available in a certain region.

The Web site measures and data were developed and compiled by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW), a national agency that works with the federal government and state and territory health departments to collect, analyze, and disseminate statistics and data. The AIHW plans to continue working with states, territories, and private hospitals to add more information to the site.
