Pomerene Hospital Earns ‘Top Performer on Key Quality Measures®’ Recognition from The Joint Commission

10-Dec-2014

Pomerene Hospital announced it has been recognized as a 2013 Top Performer on Key Quality Measures ® by the Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health care organizations in the United States. Pomerene Hospital was recognized as part of The Joint Commission’s 2014 annual report “America’s Hospitals: Improving Quality and Safety,” for attaining and sustaining excellence in accountability measure performance for Pneumonia Care and Surgical Care. Pomerene is one of 1,224 hospitals in the United States and only one of 42 in the state of Ohio to achieve the 2013 Top Performer distinction.

The Top Performer Program recognized hospitals for improving performance on evidence-based interventions that increase the chances of healthy outcomes for patients with certain conditions, including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care, children’s asthma, stroke, venous thromboembolism and perinatal care, as well as for inpatient psychiatric services and immunizations.

This is the second year Pomerene Hospital has been recognized as a Top Performer. Pomerene was recognized in 2011 and 2012 as well for its performance on accountability measure data for surgical care and pneumonia care. Pomerene Hospital is one of only 314 hospitals to achieve the Top Performer distinction for the past three consecutive years.

To be a 2013 Top Performer, hospitals had to meet three performance criteria based on 2013 accountability measure data, including:

• Achieving cumulative performance of 95 percent or above across all reported accountability measures.

• Achieving performance of 95 percent or above on each and every reported accountability measure where there were at least 30 denominator cases; and

• Having at least one core measure set that had a composite rate of 95 percent or above, and (within that measure set) all applicable individual accountability measures had a performance rate of 95 percent or above.

“Delivering the right treatment in the right way at the right time is a cornerstone of high-quality health care. I commend the efforts of Pomerene Hospital for their excellent performance on the use of evidence-based interventions,” said Mark R. Chassin, M.D., FACP, M.P.P., M.P.H., president and CEO, The Joint Commission.

 “We understand what matters most to patients at Pomerene Hospital is the quality and safety of the care they receive. That is why we have made it a top priority to improve positive patient outcomes through evidence-based care processes,” said Tony Snyder, Pomerene Hospital CEO. Pomerene is proud to be named a Top Performer as it recognizes the knowledge, teamwork and dedication of our entire hospital staff.”
