Oregon hospitals post quality data

The Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems has posted an informative, easy to use hospital quality tool on its website. Users can view state and national benchmark data as well as data for individual hospitals on CMS-mandated measures for heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, and surgical infection prevention. It’s one of the best sites of this type that I’ve seen.

Clicking on a specific indicator (like aspirin at arrival for heart attack) ranks the hospitals in order of performance.
