I knew I could find a soul mate online, as well as a plumber on Angie’s List. Did you know you can also find and evaluate a hospitals performance there as well?
Did you know that organizations such as Consumers Reports, U.S. News, and World Report, Healthgrades, LeapFrog, etc, etc. also rank hospital performance? There is a wealth of information available that grades and scores hospitals on safety, mortality, infections, complications and many other areas.
This sort of reporting and accountability is good for hospitals and good for the consumer. Unfortunately, the prospective patient can be overwhelmed by the quantity and variety of data and it can be daunting to take any one overall score and determine its relevance to the hospital procedure being considered. And of course, there is the reliability issue of information posted on the internet.
At OMCA our certified nurse case managers focus on Centers of Excellence. When it comes to specific surgeries, transplants and other specialized care, we know who has the best outcomes.
Sometimes, you need a partner who can cut through the data and help you drill down to find the best available options.
