As health care leaders, we know the complexity of our industry means hospital billing and hospital quality information can sometimes be confusing. Florida hospitals have long been public in our support for a meaningful approach to transparency. Each hospital collects a range of price and quality information that is publicly reported to state and federal agencies, but often these data are difficult to access and exist in various formats.
That's why FHA has taken proactive steps to make publicly reported information more consumer friendly and developed a new section of our recently launched Mission to Care website.
The site displays data from the Agency for Health Care Administration, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
FHA staff held a members-only webinar on Thursday, December 17, to discuss the new site in detail. View the webinar recording and the Mission to Care video.
Below are detailed materials for your review.
