Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 2, 2007
When it comes to treating heart attacks, pneumonia, surgery and other emergencies, patients want to find the best medical care available.
NetDoc.com announces a new tool for consumers and professionals that lets anyone see how the hospitals in their area measure up.
Not all hospitals are created equal. And some hospitals regularly omit important care. That's why knowing about hospital performance can make a difference in patient outcomes.
- Would a patient want to go to a hospital that gets infection prevention right only 50 percent of the time?
- When someone comes to the emergency room with pneumonia, does the hospital follow the right treatment steps?
- When a patient is rushed to the emergency room with a heart attack, does the hospital give the right medicines right away?
A surprising number of hospitals don't get it right.
That's why NetDoc.com's Hospital Rankings Tool makes it easy for consumers to get the information they need to make their health-care decisions. Hospitals are plotted on a GoogleMap and color-coded for quick reference.
Visit http://netdoc.com/hospital-rankings/ and enter a ZIP code to see how hospitals in a neighborhood rank on benchmarks set out by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in four categories: Heart Attack, Heart Failure, Pneumonia and Surgical Care Improvement/Surgical Infection Prevention.
NetDoc.com is an informational website for health-care professionals and consumers. Its focus is on new technologies in the medical fields and fundamental patient-care issues, with medical news, physician jobs and medical software.
