Mercy’s 2016 Quality Report highlights innovation
Mercy Medical Center has released its 2016 Quality Report, Innovative Healthcare to Meet Your Changing Needs. The report is designed as a user-friendly document containing clinical outcomes and safety initiatives at Mercy Medical Center and MercyCare Community Physicians. This unique report serves as an indicator to business leaders and our community, and a clear source of valuable information for consumers as they make important healthcare decisions.
The compilation and sharing of data in the report demonstrates Mercy’s dedication to transparency. By proactively tracking quality and outcomes measures, the community has meaningful facts to help evaluate Mercy as a leader in innovative, high-quality healthcare at a superior value. The report also serves as a comparison guide with other hospitals at the local, state and national levels.
An overarching theme of the 2016 Quality Report is Mercy’s continued success in navigating the changing landscape of today’s healthcare environment by embracing the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s Triple Aim. The report is presented around the Triple Aim’s three focal points: improving the patient experience, improving the health of populations, and reducing the cost of healthcare.
In 2012, Mercy was the first, and only, hospital in the area to begin publishing an annual public report of safety and quality data. Read Mercy’s 2016 Quality Report.
