For 12 years, the California Health Care Foundation operated CalQualityCare.org, an interactive, consumer-oriented website with quality ratings of both the state's hospitals and long-term care facilities. Recently, CHCF handed over its keys to a pair of carefully chosen new owners intimately familiar with the inner workings of this website. Each of these longtime partners of the foundation played an important role in producing CalQualityCare.org.
Now, when consumers visit CalQualityCare.org to view ratings for long-term care providers and facilities, they will find a site managed by a team at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). This group has collected, analyzed, and provided the ratings since the service began.
