/ Continues to Improve: New Performance Data, Benchmarks, and Social Media Tools and a New Look

We invite you to visit a redesigned to access new types of hospital performance data, including:

  • a new measure assessing the extent to which hospitals have adopted electronic medical records;
  • new composite readmission and mortality rates; and
  • median Medicare reimbursement payments for six conditions, including joint replacement and treatment for complications of diabetes.

In addition, there are two new benchmarks: the average performance of U.S. hospitals that are part of health systems, and the average performance of all non–health system hospitals.

You will also notice several improvements that make it easier than ever to create custom reports comparing and benchmarking hospitals on more than 100 measures of health care quality and safety, patient experiences, and outcomes. New tools let registered users share their saved reports via e-mail, Twitter, or a direct link.

Coming soon: enhancements to the interactive map will enable explorations of health system performance at the national, state, county, and regional levels. Using new map overlays, users will be able to zoom in on communities involved in key delivery system reform efforts, such as Beacon Communities, as well as flag providers who have been recognized for delivering high-quality care.
