The Girards Law Firm applauds UT Southwestern for publishing its quality and patient safety data at this link. This is an important move and hopefully a new trend among healthcare organizations. It is a small but important step in removing hospital secrecy that harms us all. Only by publishing quality and safety data can the healthcare consumer make informed choices about what facilities they should spend their money. Texas Health Resources claims they are going to do the same thing but has not done so yet.
