MPIRICA Health, a startup focused on quality transparency in the healthcare industry, has announced plans to list more than 1 million outpatient quality scores for individual physicians and hospitals online. According to MPIRICA, this is the first time scoring of surgeons has been done for outpatient procedures. Surgeon and hospital quality scores provided by MPIRICA will be a three-digit number based on four years of individual provider outcomes for a specific procedure, closely resembling a batting average of success for surgeons on each procedure. The scores will cover more than 1,000 procedures for roughly 40,000 surgeons and 5,000 hospitals.
