The Pennsylvania Health Care Quality Alliance (PHCQA) updated its website, www.PAHealthCareQuality.org, with readmission and mortality data through Q2 2017 for conditions such as heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, and stroke. This data, sourced from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, is updated annually each summer. Additionally, PHCQA published HCAHPS patient experience, infection, and emergency department data through Q3 2017. Cancer data sourced from the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer has been refreshed for 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 to reflect any new data submissions by cancer centers since March 2018.
