Recognized in the top 25 percent for quality, safety and expereince
By demonstrating excellence in quality patient care, Adventist Health Portland has earned the 2018 HealthInsight Hospital Quality Award. This recognition is given to the highest performing health care provider organizations in Oregon, and other states for which HealthInsight serves as the Medicare program’s Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO) contractor.
Adventist Health Portland was measured against other Oregon hospitals on publicly reported patient experience scores, healthcare associated infection rates and readmission rates. The HealthInsight Hospital Quality award is only given to hospitals that rank in the top 25th percentile for their composite score in these measures.
“This recognition validates the commitment our associates make to every patient,” says David Russell, president. “Fulfilling our mission in every interaction transforms the lives, experiences and outcomes of those we serve.”
The HealthInsight Quality Award program promotes transparency in health care. Through the HealthInsight Quality Award Program, HealthInsight aims to assist providers, improve care and help consumers be more active and informed participants in that care.
Hospital eligibility is based on a composite ranking for performance on publicly reported data (Hospital Compare) with weighted contributions:
- Patient Experience of Care (HCAHPS) - 35%
- Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs) - 45%
- Readmissions - 20%
Hospitals that rank in the top 25th percentile for the composite score are eligible for a 2018 Quality Award.
