This column chart presents the in-hospital / 30-day risk adjusted mortality rate (RAMR) for hospitals performing PCI and cardiac surgery compared to the New York State mortality rate. RAMRs that are significantly higher than the Statewide rate (i.e. more deaths than expected based on the pre-procedure condition of the patients) are represented by a red bar. RAMRs that are significantly lower than the Statewide rate (i.e. fewer deaths than expected based on the pre-procedure condition of the patients) are represented by a green bar. RAMRs that are not significantly different from the statewide rate are represented by a blue bar. The NYS rate is presented by a yellow bar. Statistical significance is determined based on a 95% confidence interval. The default view presents RAMR for coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery.
