The Hartford Courant is reporting that new data from Medicare’s Hospital Compare site rate CT hospitals highly in quality. For example, the national average time for patients with chest pain to get an electrocardiogram is 43 minutes; in CT patients wait only 19 minutes. However, we pay more than 38 other states; hospital expenses per inpatient day in 2008 were 14% higher in CT than the national average.
