Kaisernetwork.org reports: “Mortality rates of patients being treated at hospitals that ranked high on a CMS Web site of quality-of-care measures were only slightly better than for patients being treated at the lowest-ranked hospitals, according to a study published Wednesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association, the Washington Post reports (Lee, Washington Post, 12/13). For the study, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Medicine examined 2004 data from 3,657 hospitals posted on CMS’ Hospital Compare Web site.”
