Massachusetts law requires the Massachusetts Health Care Quality and Cost Council to post health care quality and cost information on a consumer-friendly website. The Council is providing data for display on the website for each hospital to review. The data are available through INET, a secure internet-based data exchange facility operated by the Massachusetts Division of Health Care Finance and Policy. Located here are the Council's letter to the hospitals and the documents detailing hospital inpatient and outpatient information, the computation of values, and response forms.
