RWJF Launches Website to Help Patients Compare Hospitals, Physicians

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) launched an online directory of free and publicly available resources on hospital and physician performance. According to RWJF, the directory links to 224 reports that use performance measurement data based on nationally recognized measurement sets for quality of care in inpatient or outpatient settings; include measures for process of care, outcome of care, cost, efficiency or patient experience; and include comparative information for facilities or providers in a defined location or nationally.
