New Data and Features on Interactive Map

Now you can get more insight than ever before on health care performance at the national, state, county, and regional levels. Recent enhancements to the interactive map let users zoom in on delivery system reforms, such as Beacon communities and areas where patient-centered medical homes have taken hold, as well as flag health care providers that have been recognized for delivering high-quality care.

New performance data have also been added to the map, including:

  • health information technology measures tracking whether hospitals have adopted basic or comprehensive electronic medical record systems;
  • prevention quality indicators tracking hospital admissions, by county, for conditions such as diabetes and asthma;
  • inpatient quality indicators showing county rates for coronary artery bypass grafts and other procedures;
  • patient safety indicators showing county rates for bloodstream infections and other complications of hospital care;
  • population health measures assessing the number of Medicare beneficiaries, by region, who have various conditions, such as heart failure; and
  • utilization and cost measures assessing regional standardized costs for imaging, lab tests, or emergency department visits among Medicare beneficiaries.

You can also read a blog post discussing how users can drill down into the map to explore health system performance and track delivery system reforms in communities across the nation.
