Updated Data on has updated and expanded its data on the incidence of central line–associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs), one of the most lethal hospital-acquired complications. The site now includes standardized infection ratios for some 1,570 U.S. hospitals across nearly all states—showing wide variation in CLABSI incidence, despite strong evidence on how to prevent these infections.

In addition, we have updated with the most recently available data for the following:

  • CMS process-of-care "core" measures;
  • Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) measures of patient experience;
  • mortality rates for heart failure, heart attack, and pneumonia;
  • readmission rates for heart failure, heart attack, and pneumonia; and
  • average reimbursement for treatment of these three conditions.
