Using the Medicare Hospital Compare website; research two hospitals. One hospital should display a high level of quality and the other hospital should display a low level of quality.
After thoroughly researching your hospitals on the Medicare Hospital Compare website, discuss how their quality performance differs. What is the first hospital doing that is yielding a high level of quality? What could the second hospital do to increase their level of quality? Finally, how would you increase value to the services provided by both hospitals?
This is an opportunity for you to explore the practical application of quality research in healthcare. I encourage you to respond in first person, share personal experiences, and ask questions to further develop your understanding of quality performance and value in healthcare.
