Hospitals Encouraged to Participate in Webinar on New Hospital Quality Scorecard
Webinar scheduled for March 5 at 9 a.m. (PT)

CHA encourages hospitals to participate in a webinar March 5 at 9 a.m. (PT) about the new U.S. News and World Reports hospital quality scorecard. The scorecard will be publicly released this spring and will include new ratings for common inpatient procedures and conditions, including coronary artery bypass grafting, total hip and knee replacement, congestive heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. During the webinar, U.S. News journalists and data analysts will describe their data sources and the methodology behind the forthcoming ratings, and provide information on important upcoming dates.

Registered users of the Best Hospitals Dashboard can access a detailed report on the methodology behind the ratings. Dashboard users will also be able to access the ratings of their own hospital under embargo before U.S. News publishes its findings.
