Houston Medical Center Places on Quality Honor Roll

Houston Medical Center has been named to the Georgia Hospital Association’s (GHA) Partnership for Health and Accountability (PHA) Core Measures Honor Roll. Houston Medical Center is one of 18 hospitals in Georgia to be placed in the Presidential category, one of the highest on the list. The honor roll is based on clinical data provided by the federal Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services (CMS), which administers the nation’s Medicare and Medicaid programs. The data was collected from January 2013 to December 2013.

Hospitals are required to submit care data to CMS, which details how well a hospital’s caregivers adhere to a list of Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) core measures. These measures are the clinical processes of care that are known to be the most effective methods of treatment for surgical patients and patients who have suffered heart attacks, pneumonia and heart failure.

For instance, a recommended treatment to help prevent a heart attack is to take aspirin either before or upon arrival at the hospital, as well as at discharge. It is recommended that surgery patients are given an antibiotic one hour prior to surgery to prevent infection. The VBP core measure is a composite measure that determines whether or not a patient received the right care at the right time. A hospital’s adherence to these recommended clinical practices usually leads to better outcomes.

“We are pleased to recognize Houston Medical Center’s commitment to patient safety,” said Earl V. Rogers, President of GHA. “Compliance with these important core measures ensures that every patient receives the best, most effective health care possible.”

“We are committed to providing high quality patient care,” said Cary Martin, Chief Executive Officer for Houston Healthcare. “This honor validates that and is a tribute to the dedication of the staff members and physicians who ensure that great patient care is made even better.”
