      Abstract

      Can a well-designed public performance report affect the public image of hospitals? Using a pre/postdesign and telephone interviews, consumer views and reports of their use of public hospital report are examined. The findings show that the report did influence consumer views about the quality of individual hospitals in the community 2 to 4 months after the release of the report.
