When it comes to health care, quality matters. Each year, thousands of people die because of medical errors. Many people are surprised to learn that patients do not get the right care almost half the time. From getting deadly infections in hospitals to being given the wrong prescription, there are things you can do to protect your health.
Because health care quality is a very important issue for our members, AARP Maine has joined Quality Counts for ME. Quality Counts for ME is a statewide effort that is working to improve healthcare quality in Maine. As part of this effort, we are working to make sure that our members know where to find comparative healthcare quality information to help them make informed healthcare choices. To help make sure you get the right care, go to www.mhmc.info to compare quality ratings for doctors and hospitals across Maine.
At AARP, we care about healthcare quality and hope that you will care enough to compare by visiting www.mhmc.info.
