Health Leaders Media

Hospital Compare, the Medicare agency’s website for public inspection of hospital quality, is now posting unique 30-day readmission rates for patients who underwent percutaneous coronary interventions or PCIs or angioplasty at 300 hospitals that volunteered to allow their data to be released. The new section of the website shows whether those hospitals had better, worse, or average risk-adjusted readmission rates.
