Try the new performance benchmarking options on WhyNotTheBest.org, The Commonwealth Fund’s quality improvement resource for health professionals.
New Compare by Groups reports lets users compare hospitals by various characteristics, contrasting the performance of all safety-net hospitals to for-profit hospitals, for example, or comparing rural with urban hospitals.
Using Compare by Regions reports, the user can examine aggregated hospital performance by state, county, or hospital referral region (HRR), as well as population health in communities around the nation.
Enhancements to the interactive map make it easier to explore regional variation and use overlays to track delivery system reforms, such as emerging accountable care organizations, as well as flag health care providers who have been recognized for delivering high-quality care.
