Although quality-reporting programs such as meaningful use provide incentives to help providers implement and use electronic health records (EHRs) to collect and report on clinical data, practices often need help deciding what data to collect, which measures to report on, and how to best use their EHRs to do so. This white paper provides you with the basic information you need to choose appropriate CQMs for your practice, and offers tips on how to use your EHR to store the data in a structured format.

The annual Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals® identifies U.S. hospitals with the best overall performance across multiple organizational metrics, including clinical, operational, and financial. The ability of some hospitals to adapt as the industry is changing demonstrates leadership as the winners set the standards their peers seek to achieve. Study projections indicate that if the new national benchmarks of high performance were achieved by all hospitals in the United States, nearly 126,500 additional lives could be saved, almost 109,000 additional patients could be complication-free, and $1.8 billion in inpatient costs could be saved.
The Truven Health Analytics 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals study identifies hospitals that achieve the best performance on a scorecard of performance measures. This year, based on comparisons between the winners and a peer group of similar high-volume hospitals that were not winners, the study found that if all cardiovascular providers performed at the level of this year’s winners, approximately 9,500 additional patients could survive, more than $1 billion could be saved, and almost 3,000 additional bypass and angioplasty patients could be complication-free. This is based on an analysis of Medicare patients; if the same standards were applied to all inpatients, the impact would be even greater.
The Truven Health Analytics 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals study identifies U.S. hospitals that have achieved the best performance on a balanced scorecard of performance measures. Based on comparisons between study winners and a peer group of similar hospitals that were not winners, winners are achieving better outcomes while operating more efficiently and at a lower cost. If all cardiovascular providers performed at the same level of this year’s winners, almost 8,000 additional lives could be saved; nearly 3,500 heart patients could be complication free; and more than $1.3 billion could be saved.
The annual Truven Health AnalyticsTM 100 Top Hospitals® identifies U.S. hospitals with the best overall performance across multiple organizational metrics, including clinical, operational, and financial. The ability of some hospitals to adapt as the industry is changing demonstrates leadership as the winners set the standards their peers seek to achieve. The study revealed that the nation’s best hospitals had a lower mortality index, considering patient severity; had fewer patient complications; followed accepted care protocols; had lower 30-day mortality and 30-day readmission rates; sent patients home sooner; provided more timely emergency care; kept expenses low, both in-hospital and through the aftercare process; and scored better on patient surveys of hospital experience
Partners HealthCare has implemented a program that helps surgeons and other clinicians easily apply best practice guidelines to a patient’s unique status. In this case study executives share the secret to boosting rates of appropriate use of high-cost procedures, and eliminating medical necessity reviews.
What do standard best practices for radiology look like? Without them, it is impossible for a hospital to identify the strengths and weaknesses of its current radiology services and strive for improvements.
In the coming era of accountable care, providers will finally have something to gain by actively engaging patients in taking care of their health—and a lot to lose by not doing so. The best way to do that is to manage every aspect of their care. But the patients themselves will remain free to defect to another provider whenever they choose, either temporarily or permanently. Persuading them to centralize their care will rapidly become job 1. This report explores survey results about the primary forces enabling patient engagement and features a case study about the active care management program in development at Beaufort Memorial Hospital in South Carolina.
A recent Health Leaders survey sheds light on the top 5 workforce initiatives healthcare executives across the country are using for successful quality of care and labor cost improvements. Learn how these leading strategies can help your hospital.

It’s a critical time for more ACOs to achieve the milestone of shared savings in order to demonstrate the ability to lower costs for an “at-risk” population. As best practices are emerging from early participants in the ACO program, ACOs have the opportunity to evolve their strategies in order to achieve more success.
