The New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation (HHC), the largest municipal hospital and healthcare system in the country, has released details of its record on certain key performance measures, including mortality and hospital acquired infection rates.

Data is available on the HHC Web site, in addition to information on how often NYC public hospitals are following best clinical practices to treat certain serious conditions such as heart attacks and pneumonia, and how well public nursing homes are doing in reducing falls, bed sores and managing pain.

The city's public hospitals are the first in the state of New York to voluntarily disclose detailed mortality and hospital-acquired infection information to the public.

Get the latest information on Health IT and attend other valuable sessions at this two-day Summit providing healthcare leaders with educational content, insightful debate and dialogue on the future of healthcare and technology.
