Does your health care provider measure up?

Floridians have online tools to compare health care providers

When it comes to your health care, transparency of useful information is important. The Agency for Health Care Administration's (AHCA) consumer website includes performance data and information on selected medical conditions and procedures in Florida's short-term acute care hospitals and ambulatory (outpatient) surgery centers. This information is not designed to offer medical advice, and is only one avenue to assist you in making well-informed health care decisions.

This site will ultimately give Florida’s health care consumers, purchasers and professionals an unprecedented degree of easy-to-access and understandable information on quality, pricing and performance. Good information is key to making sure our health care system works well and in everyone’s interests.

Interactively compare quality of care in Florida hospitals and outpatient surgery centers by using this new online tool:
