Texas Health Resources, one of the nation's largest faith-based, nonprofit health systems, today posted online a new quality and safety report on all of its wholly-owned hospitals with detailed performance data for specific clinical services using hundreds of metrics. 

The Arlington, Tex.-based health system, which includes 25 acute care and short-stay hospitals, claims it is the first health system in Texas and one of the first nationally to publish this kind of uncensored, third-party data based on national-consensus clinical indicators, which Texas Health Resources does not own or control. Data in the online report are from nationally accredited professional organizations such as the Society for Thoracic Surgeons to help analyze outcomes for cardiac procedures like heart bypass surgery, for example. The report displays clinical results such as complication rates and number of procedures performed at each of the health system's hospitals.
