GREENVILLE, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Quantros, the healthcare industry’s leading provider of performance analytics, risk management and quality management solutions, today, announced the release of its CareChex® 2018 Hospital and Health System Quality and Patient Safety Rankings and Ratings, now accessible at no cost to the public at http://www.carechex.com. Recognized and trusted by millions of value-seeking consumers, providers and purchasers of medical care throughout the nation, the updated rankings benchmark the clinical quality, patient safety and patient satisfaction performance of virtually all acute care hospitals and health systems throughout the nation.
“If you, a co-worker or someone you love recently learned they needed to enter a hospital for surgery or another reason, your main focus should be to get the highest quality, safest care possible,” explains Andy Weissberg, SVP Marketing Communications at Quantros. “CareChex® rankings and ratings are the most reliable and objective starting point for guiding these important decisions.”
At CareChex.com, users can search and compare hospitals that best match their needs across thousands of inpatient procedures, conditions and complex areas of treatment including heart bypass, hip and knee replacement, bariatric surgery, heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and lung cancer surgery. Providing a valid and reliable comparison of quality performance across providers in a particular market or region, CareChex® rankings and ratings are expressed as a Composite Quality Score® which is based upon a series of outcomes of care measures and indicators including actual rates of mortality, complications, all-site readmissions, inpatient quality, and patient safety. Updated performance rankings and ratings included in the 2018 CareChex® release are based on a risk-adjusted analysis of ten quarters of Medicare fee-for- service claims data from January 2014 to June 2016.
Beyond expanding the transparency of performance rankings and ratings that help inform consumer healthcare choices, hundreds of hospitals and large health systems throughout the nation are increasingly adopting the Quantros® Performance Analytics Suite to monitor, measure and benchmark value-based utilization and clinical outcomes commensurately with purchaser and payer goals and objectives.
