North Carolina Hospital Report Cards
Since January 2004, the North Carolina Center for Hospital Quality and Patient Safety (NC Quality Center) has been posting on this site the quality measures that derive from the data submitted by hospitals to the Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) Clinical Data Warehouse (part of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)). The NC Quality Center has been reporting these measures in the reports section in categories by condition (heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, and surgical care).
This site is a resource to inform consumers about hospital quality care and to help North Carolinians make good decisions about health care. Consumers should view this information as a starting point for educating themselves about hospital quality, for talking to their doctors about choosing a hospital for medical care, and for asking questions while receiving care in the hospital. Consumers may want to review the quality measure information when considering a hospital visit for a scheduled procedure.
In this report, each quality measure includes only patients whose history and condition indicate the treatment is appropriate.
Talk to your doctor if you have questions about your treatment.
