Consumer Site Adds Knee and Hip Replacement Data

A statewide consumer resource for health and medical issues has added physician volume data on total hip and total knee replacements, offering residents another valuable tool for making informed decisions.

According to the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration, consumers can access everything they need to know about hip and knee replacements in Florida’s hospitals at www.floridahealthfinder.gov, including health outcomes, pricing, physician volume, and educational information.

The information on this site helps consumers and researchers find and compare results for nursing homes, prescription drugs, hospice providers, health plan performance, and hospital inpatient data on length of stay, charges, mortality, complication and infection rates and more.

According to this recently compiled data, doctors at Halifax Health’s Medical Center of Daytona Beach performed the most of these two procedures in Volusia County with 259 total hip replacement procedures and 377 total knee replacement procedures in 2009. The data breaks down the number of surgeries by doctors who performed them, which is valuable information for consumers searching for experienced surgeons.

“It is important to provide consumers access to information that can help them make well-informed health care decisions for themselves and their loved ones,” said Elizabeth Dudek, Interim Secretary of the Agency for Health Care Administration, in a press release.
