Healthcare Quality Information
The quality of health care impacts patients in many ways. High-quality care can speed your recovery from illness or procedures, improve your ability to stay well, and improve your quality of life. Before choosing a healthcare provider, you should look for information about the providerís performance, visit or call the facility, if possible, and ask your family and friends about their experiences.
What You Should Do
Select healthcare providers that perform well compared to their peers.
