NY Posts Cardiac Surgery, Other Data on Web Site


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 site includes environmental radiation surveys at various facilities 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.
