 Online Public Access to Statistics on Heart Surgeries and Surgeons Performance

The Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery (SCTS) has announced that the statistics on the performance of heart surgeons and the success rate of surgeries would soon be made available to the public.

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.
