Web site to help Georgians make decisions about healthcare

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, May 9, 2008

The Georgia Department of Community Health has awarded a $5.2 million contract to the IBM Corp. to build a Web site for state consumers in an effort to help them make more informed healthcare decisions. The Web site, scheduled to go online in October, will offer information about hospitals and where various procedures are performed. The Web site will also permit the comparison of hospitals in terms of cost, quality, customer service scores, and other related information.
