The MHA notes that, while Medicare data are good indicators of pricing and quality at Michigan hospitals, consumers should not base their health care treatment decisions exclusively on this information. Consumers are encouraged to contact their local hospital, personal physician and insurance company for additional information.

"We started with Medicare data since Medicare represents a large segment of patients in Michigan and the data are available from a reliable and credible source," Johnson said. "The MHA will work with its individual member hospitals to build on that base to expand the information available on the Web site in the future."

In addition to MI Hospital Inform, the MHA and its member hospitals continue to serve as national leaders in terms of launching voluntary programs and services to improve health care pricing, quality and access:

-- Through the MHA Keystone Center for Patient Safety & Quality, Michigan

hospitals have launched groundbreaking programs to reduce medical

errors and improve the quality of patient care delivered at the

bedside. This voluntary effort has been nationally acclaimed for saving

thousands of lives and hundreds of millions of dollars in hospitals

across Michigan.

-- Through the MHA, Michigan hospitals in the mid-1990s were among the

first in the nation to voluntarily report hospital-specific quality

measures and have since expanded their efforts to lead in the reporting

of community benefits performed within their localities.

-- Under the guidelines of federal law, Michigan hospitals are developing

adverse events and pursue corrective action. By analyzing patient

safety data,
