Reliability

Share

The Reliability / Composite score represents the percent of times we provided the right care to the patient each time it was needed. The following areas are measured by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement:

 

CORE MEASURE RELIABILITY - Pneumonia
Edward Hospital
Pneumonia Reliability – Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs. Eight performance indicators apply to pneumonia that start before the patient's admission to the hospital. (Read about the performance indicators.) The IHI goal is 99%.

 


 

CORE MEASURE RELIABILITY - Heart Attack
Edward Hospital
Heart Attack/AMI Reliability – Heart Attack, also called Acute Myocardial Infarction, is a life-threatening event that can happen when not enough oxygen reaches the heart. When a heart attack occurs, quick use of aspirin and other treatments can reduce damage to the heart and reduce the chance of death. The IHI goal is 99%.

 


 

CORE MEASURE RELIABILITY - Heart Failure
Edward Hospital
Heart Failure – Heart Failure, sometimes called Congestive Heart Failure, is a chronic condition caused when the heart cannot pump as much blood as the body needs. Heart failure becomes more common with age, and causes symptoms such as shortness of breath and a buildup of fluid in the feet and legs. Heart failure is one of the most common reasons that people require hospitalization. A healthy lifestyle and proper medications can reduce the effects of heart failure and the need for future hospitalization. The IHI goal is 99%.

 


 

CORE MEASURE RELIABILITY - Surgical Care
Edward Hospital
Surgical Care – Surgical care is evaluated based on mortality rates within 30 days for different types of surgery and the percentage of surgical site infections that occur. O/E ratios (Observed to Expected Ratio) are a way of comparing our specific, "observed" outcomes at Edward against industrywide "expected" outcomes. The O/E Ratio allows health care providers to gauge whether their observed outcomes for the surgery were better, the same, or worse than what would be expected given the existing underlying risk factors of the patient. The IHI goal is 99%.
