A consolidated site to compare a host of quality reports on your hospital is now available.
Robert Wood Johnson has launched the National Directory for Comparing Health Care Quality. No new quality data is available but it pulls together a host of publicly available quality reports into one site.æ
Through an interactive map of the United States on the site, you can pull up lists of available reports by state, and link to the actual data.
Data about cost right is presented alongside the data about quality.
RWJ believes that this site will encourage healthy competition amongst health care systems and physicians to improve their product.
I checked it out and the site is uneven at best but give it a test run and see what you think.
