NY Health Officials Post Data About Surgeons, Procedures Online
New York health officials have begun posting online data about cardiac surgeries, hospitals and the doctors statewide who perform them, including their cases from 2008 to 2010 and mortality rates.
Other information posted on the Health Data NY website includes environmental radiation surveys at various facilities and sites around New York. The measures of levels in the air, water, milk, fish, sediment and vegetation are used to determine normal levels and the effects from what people are doing.
The site now lists Medicaid program enrollments by region, child obesity by school district, restaurant food inspection results and availability of nursing home beds.
