Illinois launches Web site with hospital prices, quality ratings

Chicago Tribune, November 20, 2009
A new, state-sponsored Web site publishes data on Illinois hospitals and surgery centers that includes information about what these medical providers charge, how many procedures they perform, how often they deliver recommended care, and how consumers rate their care. The publication of Illinois' first Hospital Report Card and Consumer Guide fulfills the promise of legislation passed in 2003. The goal was to help people become better consumers of medical services and hold medical providers accountable for their performance.
