Last week, CT’s Department of Public Health unveiled MONAHRQ, a web tool allowing consumers and other health care decision-makers to compare the quality, outcomes, utilization and costs of health care in our state. For example, Only three of CT’s 24 general hospitals are above average in patient ratings – Greenwich, Middlesex and Milford. Sadly, most (17) rank below average and seven are average. Another report from the web tool finds that New Haven county has the dubious distinction of the highest per capita rate of avoidable hospitalizations in the state. We have a lot of room for improvement.
