In the spirit of transparency, many hospitals are recognizing the importance of putting quality and safety data online. But the resulting output is often an endless page of numbers, charts, and graphs that mean nothing to consumers.
In fact, our research showed that the typical measures of care hospitals report on – such as mortality and readmission rates – are just part of what consumers consider when assessing hospital quality.
So we set out to reimagine the online display of quality and safety data, making it as accessible as reviewing a car on consumer reports.
In this personalized mobile-first experience, consumers get to tell us what specialty they are most interested in and which measures of quality – from convenience to expertise to risks – are most important to them. Based on their selections, each user receives a dashboard of quality measures they might factor into their decision-making process.
