At Port Huron Hospital we are constantly seeking to improve the quality of the services we provide to our patients. Quality measures have been provided for each of the topics to the right. In addition, you will find information about the sources used to establish each quality measure. This information is provided to assist you in assessing the ability of our organization to provide quality health care for you and/or your family members.
The 'websites' listed to the right publish statistics related to the clinical outcomes of patients treated for certain conditions at Port Huron Hospital. Each website has an area explaining how the data is measured, for example, whether all patients with a certain illness are included in the data or just patients with Medicare or Medicaid. It also explains the age of the data.
Please keep in mind that the data presented on some of the websites is at least 2 years old. On the right in the 'Featured Links' you will find the most current data available for the areas displayed. You can always call us if you have any questions.
Quality measures, also referred to as quality indicators, can be used to report how well an organization provides care for patients undergoing certain procedures and/or for patients with particular medical conditions.
Quality measures assess aspects of healthcare structure (such as types and availability of services), outcomes (such as infection rates, mortality, length of stay), or processes (such as giving antibiotics prior to and after certain surgical procedures). Quality measures can have applications for measuring performance of hospitals, health professionals, and physicians.
Research was conducted to determine the established or emerging quality measures for the procedures and medical conditions listed to the far right. For each procedure or medical condition, published standards have been identified. These quality statements provide relevant information needed to help you make more informed decisions about your healthcare.
