Made available by Medicare.gov, Hospital Compare has information about the quality of care at over 4,000 Medicare-certified hospitals across the country. From this website, a visitor can get a snapshot of the quality of hospitals in their local area as well as nationwide data for the following six aspects:

    1. Readmission rates and 30-day mortality rates for conditions such heart attacks, heart failures and pneumonia.
    2. The likelihood that admitted patients will suffer complications.
    3. The frequency that patients get conditions that are preventable by adopting best practices.
  • Medical imaging usage: use of tests like CT scans and MRIs.
  • Patients experience surveys: recently discharged patients responses to a national survey about their hospital experience, e.g, how quickly hospital staff responded to their needs.
  • Number of Medicare patients: how many patients with Medicare insurance have been treated for certain conditions or diagnoses in each hospital. This does not include critical access hospitals because of their different payment methods.
  • Medicare payment: how the hospitals are paid by Medicare.
