Medicine Grand Rounds - Making Information about the Quality of Healthcare More Transparent

Dr. Lindenauer describes the increasing number and complexity of healthcare quality ratings for hospitals and providers despite limited evidence regarding the validity and impact of these ratings on quality of care. Transparency has the potential to help patients make more informed choices, and releasing data to the public may influence outcomes in a competitive healthcare marketplace. Dr. Lindenauer is a strong proponent of narratives, patient reported outcomes, and cost exposure as these may avoid the unintended consequences of conflicting report card ratings.
