Value of Care

The value of care measures consider the payment amounts and the mortality rates to evaluate the quality of care received. The value of care is evaluated for heart attack, heart failure and pneumonia patients. National benchmarks help patients compare if a hospital’s death rate was better than, no different than, or worse than the national rate. Similarly, patients can compare if a hospital’s payment per condition is less than, no different than, or greater than the national average payment.
