Hospital Quality and Pricing Data

Louisiana Hospital Inform is a user-friendly resource for information on Louisiana hospitals. Because the consumer's role in managing their own healthcare is changing, Louisiana hospitals made a commitment to provide information regarding hospital pricing and quality. Louisiana Hospital Inform provides:

  • Pricing data on the 100 most common inpatient and outpatient services
  • Quality data on surgical infections, 30-day mortality and the most common causes of hospitalization: heart attack, congestive heart failure and pneumonia
  • Patient satisfaction survey information from Hospital CAHPS®
  • Demographic information, services offered and contact numbers for hospitals
