/ Interactive Map

Enhancements to the interactive map enable robust explorations of health system performance at the national, state, county, and regional levels. Using new map overlays, users can zoom in on communities involved in key delivery system reform efforts, such as the Beacon Communities or 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 indictors showing county rates for bloodstream infections and other complications of hospital care;
  • population health measures by region assessing the number of Medicare beneficiaries with various conditions, such as heart failure; and
  • utilization and cost measures by region assessing standardized costs for imaging, lab tests, or emergency department visits among Medicare beneficiaries.
