A newly-updated public website, uofmhealth.org/quality, offers the chance to view quality and outcomes data from across the U-M Health System, in areas ranging from prostate cancer to pediatric transplant, ICU infections and inpatient DVT prevention.

Designed for use by patients and providers alike, the site gives unbiased data presented in graphic format with supporting explanations and details. Where possible, UMHS performance is compared with national benchmarks.

The site includes data that isn't available anywhere else on the Web, as well as information on efforts UMHS is making to improve clinical care quality and safety. Originally launched in April 2010, the site was recently updated to add more categories of care, including far more data about pediatric care.
