iHealthBeat: The Senate’s Finance Committee in Louisiana passed a legislation to create a state-run Web site intended to let consumers compare the cost and quality of health care facilities in the state.

The Web site is expected to cost an estimated $500,000 annually, according to health and hospitals secretary Alan Levine.

According to Levine, the Web site would include information on:

  • Bed sore rates;
  • Complications;
  • Mortality rates;
  • Postoperation infections (AP/New Orleans Times-Picayune, 4/21).
