Hospital Compare is a Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services website that houses quality information for more than 4,000 Medicare-certified U.S. hospitals. Of interest to the PRAXIS member will be the Readmissions & deaths tab associated with each hospital profile; this tab includes readmissions and mortality statistics for COPD (as well as heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, stroke, coronary artery bypass graft and hip/knee surgery) and compares the individual hospital's performance to the national average.

More information about these measures can be found here: https://www.medicare.gov/hospitalcompare/Data/30-day-measures.html.
