About PHCQA:

Overview

Who We Are

The Pennsylvania Health Care Quality Alliance (PHCQA) is a voluntary group of health care organizations collaboratively working together to improve the quality of health care for the people of Pennsylvania. We believe that by sharing aggregated quality performance data openly through public reporting on the Internet, we can provide valuable, objective health care quality information for all consumers. On our website you can find and compare information about quality of care and patient experience at over 175 hospitals. Additionally, our data can inform you about the care you can expect to receive and provide context on the type of questions you could ask your doctor regarding your health and your care.
