National health care experts have developed treatment standards for selected medical conditions and surgical procedures. When hospitals meet these standards they help ensure that their patients receive the very best care.
How well hospitals are doing in meeting these standards is reported regularly to the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The information is converted into a percentage allowing patients to easily compare the quality of care that hospitals give.
The conditions/procedures that hospitals report on include heart attack care, heart failure care, pneumonia care and improvements in surgical care. You can select these conditions/procedures using the list to the right. From those pages, you can select individual measures that health care experts agree contribute to the well-being of patients with these conditions.
For each measure, we present how well we do at HealthAlliance Hospital compared with the average of hospitals in Massachusetts and in the United States.
