STS Public Reporting Online
Heart Surgery Outcomes - Public Access
STS believes the public has a right to know the quality of surgical outcomes and considers public reporting an ethical responsibility of the specialty. STS Public Reporting Online enables STS National Database participants to voluntarily report to each other and the public their heart surgery composite star ratings and the component ratings from which those are derived.
STS only publishes group and/or hospital level data for which the participant correctly submitted the required data for composite score and star rating analysis. Groups and/or hospitals that have >10% of missing data during the reporting time period do not receive composite scores and star ratings and, therefore, are not publicly reported.
