Healthcare Tools & Hospital Guides

As an employer we believe that having access to information is key to helping employees obtain quality healthcare. Quality healthcare is more than just having a plan or a certain provider, and it’s more than a matter of cost. For some, it can be as serious as life and death.

  • We know that Americans get the right care only 55% of the time
  • Medical mistakes are the fifth leading cause of death in the United States.
  • Almost 6,000 people die every year because of medication errors!
Choosing the right healthcare provider, hospital, or facility is important to your health and safety.
  • Find out where your hospital ranks
  • What recommended safety practices is your hospital using?
  • Make better informed decisions before a procedure or surgery
  • Learn about the national Leapfrog patient safety project
  • Learn about CPOE (Computer Physician Order Entry)
  • Learn what patients have to say about your hospital
