"mortality rates for 19 medical and surgical conditions" ??? That may refer to the number of measures on Hospital Compare (?), but it is NOT what they looked at in their study, quote: "composite measures of performance on processes of care for acute myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure, and pneumonia... from which we built patient-level hierarchical logistic regression models to calculate 30-day risk adjusted mortality and readmission rates..." Let's not overstate the case!
