Two new surgical ratings/rankings became available to consumers today, and AHA has provided a Member Advisory with details on both.

First, ProPublica, an independent, investigative journalism group, published a new story rating surgeons and a database scorecard. USA Today and other Gannet-owned papers featured the new database yesterday and other media outlets may follow suit. The database features “death and complication rates” for surgeons for eight elective surgical procedures and is searchable by hospital and surgeon. In its story, ProPublica shared the overall learnings from this analysis. The AHA was given the opportunity to review their analytic approach and overall findings, but not the specific ratings, and found ProPublica’s analysis and methodology faulty overall.

In less than two weeks, U.S. News & World Report will issue its new Best Hospitals for Common Care rating system. U.S. News & World Report will portray data on more than 4,500 hospitals. The system evaluates how well hospitals perform for common conditions and procedures such as heart bypass surgery, hip replacement, knee replacement, heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Hospitals and health systems have an opportunity to review their data in advance of its publication by logging into the U.S. News Best Hospital Dashboard. Hospitals are strongly encouraged to review the data. If you do not have a login to the dashboard, you can request one at the login screen. For more information on the new rating system, please see the AHA Quality Advisory, Hospital Compare Star Ratings and Other New Hospital Rankings Coming Soon,...

Consumer Reports magazine has reported ratings of hospitals for heart-valve and coronary artery bypass surgery based on hospitals' reports to the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS). More than 400 hospitals in 45 states have been rated, based on "medical records showing whether patients survived the procedure and how they fared on other important measures, including complications," the magazine states.

Although more than 1,000 hospitals send data to STS, only 400 allowed it to be shared with Consumer Reports. Of those, "20 percent (83) were above average, 75 percent (310) were average and 4 percent (18) were below average," the magazine reports. Robbin Cohen, a cardiothoracic surgery professor at the University of Southern California, stated the STS has very high standards, so hospitals with average scores do a very good job.

King's Daughters Medical Center in Ashland and Baptist Health Paducah were the only Kentucky hospitals ranked above average for either type of procedure — both hospitals...
