Hospitals - Atlanta Magazine

Atlanta magazine has partnered with HealthGrades, an independent research firm, to provide readers with safety ratings for metro-Atlanta hospitals—both in general and by procedure. To help consumers evaluate and compare hospital performance, HealthGrades analyzes patient data for virtually every hospital in the country to determine patient safety outcomes. HealthGrades uses Medicare inpatient data (this data is constantly updated in the online search database, bringing you statistics based on the newest available information) and federal quality assurance software to analyze thirteen Patient Safety Indicators (PSI). HealthGrades determines if the hospital's performance for each PSI is Best, Average, or Poor. Individual procedures are given star ratings, indicating whether performance is Best, As Expected, or Poor. HealthGrades risk-adjusts the data to ensure a fair comparison between hospitals.
