Clinical Title: Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) Rate

How often the hospitals do surgery to bypass blocked blood vessels in the heart. Number of discharges with CABG procedure per population.

  • A lower score is better.
  • This is not a measure of hospital quality. It is a measure of practice patterns in an area. There can be wide variation in practice patterns that might suggest overuse or underuse.
  • A score of less than 1 means that the hospital had fewer deaths due to these conditions than other hospitals nationwide with a similar case mix. For example, an overall score of 0.5 means that half as many patients died as expected.
  • A score of 1 means that the hospital had the same number of deaths due to these conditions as other hospitals nationwide with a similar case mix.
  • A score of more than 1 means the hospital had more deaths due to these conditions than other hospitals nationwide with a similar case mix. For example, an overall score of 2.0 means that twice as many patients died as expected.
  • Each individual component of this score takes into account how sick patients were before they went to the hospital (the components are risk-adjusted).
  • Ratings include a significance test.
  • The number of hospital stays is provided for every 100000 people who reside in that area (i.e., the population).
