Enhanced Patient Data Query Tool Now Available on FloridaHealthFinder.gov
Webinars for Florida’s Hispanic Community also available
TALLAHASSEE – The Agency for Health Care Administration (Agency) today announced anew and improved patient data query tool for Hospitals, Ambulatory Surgery Centers, and Emergency Departments. This resource is now available online by accessing the ‘Researchers and Professionals’ tab located at www.FloridaHealthFinder.gov. The new query tool is fast and easy to use, providing access to reports that illustrate trends surrounding facility performance and charges in just a few clicks.
The Agency is also offering additional webinars that focus on the needs of Florida’s Hispanic community that explain how to use the www.FloridaHealthFinder.gov resources such as the hospital comparison tool, symptom navigator, and facility and provider locator.
“We’re excited about the new query tool and expanding consumer education for Spanish-speaking consumers,” said Secretary Liz Dudek. “These new features are a positive step toward ensuring Floridians are well-informed to make health care choices that improve access to care and health outcomes.”
The new query tool will benefit researchers and professionals by allowing them to identify hospitals with the highest/lowest utilization rates; review the most common diagnoses; analyze the most frequently cited reasons for patient emergency department visits; filter utilization rates by patient and facility demographics, and much more.
The Spanish webinars, similar to current offerings, provide a live virtual tour of the FloridaHealthFinder.gov website including a question and answer period. Webinars are also available by appointment and can be tailored to fit a particular audience.
