CMS has added data to the new HealthCare.gov website on medical imaging procedures, heart care, and readmission and infection rates at hospitals. About 96% of U.S. hospitals submitted data for the effort, which includes 42 quality measures. The data update is also included in HHS' Hospital CompareÂ tool.
