Web site compares cost, quality among Massachusetts hospitals

Boston Globe, December 11, 2008

A new Web site, www.mass.gov/myhealthcareoptions, compares the cost and quality of care at different Massachusetts hospitals, part of a state plan to help control healthcare costs by giving consumers more information. The site gives consumers access to previously confidential information about how much insurers pay individual hospitals for surgical procedures, and allows comparisons of patient satisfaction ratings and patient safety measures at different hospitals.
