Reporting Leads to Improvement
Roper St. Francis Healthcare is dedicated to improving patient care. We believe you can't improve what you don't measure. That is why we have committed to measuring and publicly reporting our performance.
There are scientific ways to measure health care quality and are used by health professionals to review and improve the quality of care they provide. A quality measure is information from a patient's record or an operational process converted into a rate, percentage, or time showing how well providers are taking care of their patients. Quality measures provide information on how well providers care for some, but not all of their patients. Most quality measures have been designed to measure evidence-based care. Patients who should not get the recommended care treatments are not counted in the measures.
Quality measurement is a relatively new science and requires a large amount of resources to develop and collect the information. Fully developed and tested measures are only available for reporting on some of the most common conditions or processes of care. The data listed below is the current comparison data available from Centers for Medicare/Medicaid Services (CMS) based on the quality metrics requested for public reporting. More information about the measure details and rationale can be found at www.myschospital.org and/or www.hospitalcompare.hhs.gov.
