Private Healthcare Information Network publishes first hospital performance measures

The Private Healthcare Information Network (PHIN) has published the first of a series of performance measures to improve the availability of information to patients considering private healthcare services and bring standards of data quality and transparency in line with the NHS.

Patients will be able to find independent and credible information on hospitals which is useful when discussing options with GPs or specialists.

The three performance measures cover 149 common procedures at over 200 hospitals and show patient admissions, average lengths of stay for each procedure and the same patient satisfaction measure for hospitals as used by the NHS (the “Friends and Family Test”).
