Comparing hospitals that perform coronary artery bypass surgery : the effect of outcome measures and data sources.
The relative quality of hospital care often is judged by comparing risk-adjusted rates of adverse outcomes.
This study evaluated whether hospital quality comparisons are affected by the choice of outcome and the use of administration data instead of clinical data.
The data were collected from 2687 coronary artery bypass surgery patients from 17 hospitals.
For 10 hospitals with 94 and 713 patients, risk-adjusted outcomes for death, major complications, and any complications were derived from a clinically rich database and an administrative database.
