Cardiovascular Surgery clinical quality information

Healthcare quality monitoring and regulatory agencies have identified Heart Attack (Acute Myocardial Infarction), Heart Failure, Pneumonia and Cardiovascular Surgery medical practices as strong indicators of hospital quality. In other words, if hospitals score high managing these illnesses, it is highly likely their overall quality of care is also high.
