AZ health dept. to roll out hospital compare tool

AZ Hospital Compare is managed by the Arizona Health Services Department and will be accessible beginning Monday. The searchable database will allow patients to compare the costs of specific care types like a knee replacement at hospitals in their area.

They’ll also be able to compare and review discharge rates and get a quality indicator score. The site uses both federal and state data.

A demonstration of the new site will be held at 11 a.m. Monday and can be viewed at http://www.livestream.com/azdhs . A link to the AZ Hospital Compare site will then be available on the department website at http://www.azdhs.gov/.
