New online benchmarking engine allows hospitals to compare themselves to peers

A newly launched online benchmarking engine pulls public data for 4,813 hospitals from CMS' Hospital Compare website and allows for comparison of hospitals against their peers.

The tool, called OnlyBoth, uses artificial intelligence software that reviews the data and reports the findings in English sentences. It describes hospitals by 84 attributes.

People can enter any U.S. hospital into the engine and get answers to the following three questions:

1. How are we doing?

2. Where could we improve?

3. Which similar peers do best?

"[OnlyBoth] starts with business data, discovers insights, and writes them up for people to act on," said Oren Etzioni, CEO of the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence in Seattle.
