Finding the Best Healthcare

Hospital Outcomes Scoring
After publishing the above report, Amory Associates focused on an area of consumer information it found to be most important and most lacking – the ability to choose a hospital based on its outcomes (deaths & complications). Death rates vary widely among hospitals, but hospital rating services don’t effectively identify low death rate hospitals.
