Hospital Compare site adds PCI readmissions data
Modern Healthcare

Data revealing how many patients are readmitted within 30 days of undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention, or PCI, are now publicly available through Medicare’s Hospital Compare website. Developed through a partnership with Yale New Haven Health Services Corp.-Center for Outcomes Research and Evaluation and the CMS, and using information from the American College of Cardiology’s National Cardiovascular Data Registry, the site’s newest measure compares hospitals by showing how often patients were readmitted within a month following a PCI procedure.
