Online tool measures hospital performance
The Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association (VHHA) has introduced an online tool offering information about hospitals’ performance on key quality, safety and patient satisfaction measures.
VHHA’s Quality & Patient Safety Scorecard at www.vhha.com provides information about health care-associated infections, patient safety, hospital readmission rates, mortality data, patient satisfaction and efficiency of Medicare spending per beneficiary.
The report cards chart changes in performance from 2010-2014 and list the data source for each category.
In addition to the scorecards, VHHA recently unveiled its Community Health Legislative Dashboards, which follows key health and population statistics by region throughout the commonwealth.
VHHA also maintains an updated PricePoint website that allows visitors to review demographic, quality and charge information on Virginia hospitals.
