Academic Journal
The article discusses how consumers in the U.S. can assess the quality of medical outsourcing providers, or providers of health care abroad. Several measures can be used to assess a hospital's performance, but it is difficult to apply them across facilities in different countries. Consumers should assess information from a variety of sources including web sites for accrediting organizations, academic literature, and even relevant congressional testimony. Statistics about personnel at a facility can be consulted, such as the percentage of physicians who are board-certified.
