Virginia group provides hospital cardiac care comparisons

An online tool recently launched by Virginia Health Information group (a not-for-profit group) enables users to compare cardiac care at hospitals in the state of Virginia.

This Web site shows how often hospitals provide cardiac care and provides the percentage of heart attack patients who die at individual hospitals, as well as the percentage of heart attack patients who are hospitalized again within 30 days. This VHI report groups cardiac care into three Cardiac Care Service Lines. These groups include medical care for heart disease and heart surgery.
