Hospital-Specific Public Reporting Measures
Under state law, hospitals must publicly report hospital-specific performance on acute myocardial infarction, heart failure and pneumonia as well as hospital-acquired infections as published by the National Quality Forum. These hospital-specific performance measures can be found on the following websites:
- The Hospital Compare website has information about the quality of care at over 4,000 Medicare-certified hospitals across the country. You can use Hospital Compare to find hospitals and compare the quality of their care. This website provides hospital-specific performance on the measures of care for acute myocardial infarction, heart failure, pneumonia and hospital-acquired infections as published by the National Quality Forum/National Healthcare Surveillance System (NHSN).
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) website contains surveillance reports that include summaries of healthcare-associated infections and associated statewide benchmarks.
