Health Leaders Media

California has recently become the first state to report hospital data on rate of stroke in patients after coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, and the results show a wide variation among 121 hospitals. The new measure comes in the state’s regular hospital data report for 2007 on CABG mortality, which has been issued eight times since 2001 when the first report covered hospital performance for 1998-99.
