Nicholas finds disparity between process and outcome measures for high-risk surgeries

a PSC In The News reference, 2010

"Medicare Faulted on Surgery Evaluation" - Wall Street Journal. 10/18/2010.

Lauren Nicholas and colleagues looked at outcomes for Medicare patients on more than 325,000 high-risk surgeries at 2,189 hospitals, comparing these to how well hospitals complied with Medicare's process measures, as reported by Hospital Compare. The conclusion: "Currently available information on the Hospital Compare website will not help patients identify hospitals with better outcomes for high-risk surgery."
