In an initiative to increase the transparency of heart surgery procedures, the society has decided to launch a new website, Blue Book Online, open to public access. Patients would now be able to go through the performance of doctors, success rate of different surgical procedures and hospitals.

The data available on the website would also allow doctors to compare their own performance and get to know the general trends.
