Encouraging, creating and improving transparency in health care is a priority for us here at HealthInsight. So much so that transparency is a major part of our Ends policies that guide and direct the work we do here. Transparency in health care means having the right information available to the right people when they need it.
As part of the work to create a transparent health care system, we have created and worked to continually improve our UtahHealthScape website. Late last year, the website underwent a major renovation, which included reworking the look and feel of the site, improving mobile optimization and adding new data to better serve patients, providers, health care facilities and the community in general.
UtahHealthScape is continually being updated to better serve our community. Data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Nursing Home Compare, Home Health Compare and Hospital Compare has been updated and added to UtahHealthScape. We have also added locally sourced information about HealthInsight Quality Awards, Community Health Information Exchange (cHIE) participation and nursing home participation in a community coalition to reduce potential adverse drug events for new patients.
