Hospital Rankings Visualized

Naoum Issa at Medical Resource Group showed me a neat little tool at NetDoc which is basically a mashup of Google Maps and HHS hospital database. It uses publicly available data from the Department of Health and Human Services, and displays a summary of the information on a GoogleMap. Although the information shouldn’t be see as canonical, it’s a quick and easy way to access hospital quality data by locale, and the ability to drill down for more detail if necessary.

I love tools like this which basically take mountains (or even molehills) of data already available and make them more accessible to the public.

Thanks for pointing it out, Naoum.

Here’s how hospitals in my area fare.
