New Site Compares Pennsylvania Hospitals

Search by Procedure and Facility to Inform Healthcare Decisions

PHILADELPHIA, March 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Consumers can now make even more informed decisions when selecting a hospital for treatment, thanks to a new Web site offering searches by procedure and facility.

Synthesizing extensive data from the 2003-2007 Pennsylvania Health Care Cost Containment Council's Public Hospital Performance Reports (PHC4) into a searchable format, http://www.pa-hospital-search.com provides data on more than 150 hospitals in Southeastern, Central/Northeastern and Western Pennsylvania.

When they visit the site, consumers can:

  • get background on over 50 common medical conditions and procedures, from abnormal heartbeat to vascular procedures;
  • view mortality rates, average hospital stays and regionally-adjusted costs, and readmission for complications and infections;
  • compare this information to regional and statewide data, from 2003-2007; and
  • provide feedback on the usefulness of data.

The data was compiled, and will be updated as new PHC4 data becomes available, by Philadelphia-based civil justice law firm Anapol, Schwartz, Weiss, Cohan, Feldman & Smalley, P.C. Future enhancements to http://www.pa-hospital-search.com/?ID=20090307 will allow consumers to generate customized reports offering side-by-side treatment and cost information on specific procedures at multiple hospitals.

Committed to identifying consumer risks before they impact the greater population, Anapol Schwartz also plans to unveil in the near future a site raising awareness about adverse prescription drug reactions.

Since its founding in 1977, Anapol Schwartz has handled medical malpractice, medical device, and pharmaceutical mass tort, among other matters, obtaining many multimillion dollar settlements and verdicts for victims of others' gross negligence. With more than 25 attorneys, the firm maintains law offices in Philadelphia, Media, Reading and Harrisburg, Pa., as well as Cherry Hill, N.J. and Wheeling, W.Va.
