New online tool lets Seattle-area consumers check up on healthcare

Seattle Post-Intelligencer, September 10, 2008

A new online tool called the Community Checkup report now lets Seattle-area consumers look up information about how well healthcare is practiced in the region. The report allows consumers to examine local performance for several health conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, depression, and low back pain. It includes performance results for 26 hospitals, using public data from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
