MN Community Measurement (MNCM) released new results for five hospital-based health care quality measures on MNCM’s public reporting website MNHealthScores.org. This information can be used to compare hospitals within Minnesota with state and national averages. Three of the measures are based on mortality or death rates that occur within 30 days following hospitalizations for heart attack (acute myocardial infarction), heart failure and pneumonia. For these measures, lower rates of death are better. On all three measures, the statewide average was the same or lower than the national average. These results show that Minnesota hospitals had average or better than average performance compared to hospitals in other parts of the nation.
