The VA Hospital Compare web site. This site is for Veterans, family members and their caregivers to compare the performance of their VA hospitals to other VA hospitals. Using this tool, Veterans, family members, and caregivers can compare the hospital care provided to patients.
Quality Information on this web site is divided into four sections:
1) LinKS (“Linking Information Knowledge and Systems”) summarizes outcomes in areas such as acute care, safety, Intensive Care and other measures
2) ASPIRE documents quality and safety goals for all VA hospitals, plus how well our hospitals are meeting these goals
3) Compare how well your local VA hospital cares for its veterans with congestive heart failure, heart attack and pneumonia
4) Tracks progress in the VA in reducing complications from surgery including infection, blood clots, cardiac, and respiratory problems
