  1. State-of-the-Art of Hospital and Physician/Physician Group Public Reports is an analysis of 126 hospital public reports and 27 physician/physician group public reports conducted for AHRQ for their March 2011 Summit on Public Reporting in Washington, DC.
  2. State Health Insurance Exchange Websites: A Review, Discussion and Recommendation s for Providing Consumers Information About Quality and Performance is a report conducted for AARP that examined 70 managed care report cards in the context of performance information for consumers on health insurance exchanges.

Links to both reports are available on the IPI website:

In addition, IPI has begun to rate hospital report card websites, starting in 10 states (AL, AR, AK, AZ, CA, CT, CO, DE, DC, HI and ND).  These evaluations supplement the nursing home and physician report card reviews IPI has already conducted.

IPI is a Maryland-based non-profit organization that provides access to credible online information about health care quality and patient safety for the public.  IPI rates the usefulness of online doctor, hospital and nursing home report cards and provides Tip Sheets about what to do if you have a concern about quality in a doctor’s office, hospital or nursing home in the states of California, Maine, New York and Pennsylvania.
