South Texas Veterans Health Care System Named Top Performer on Key Quality Measures
Date:10/30/2013

ross all reported accountability measures; 2) achieve performance of 95 percent or above on each and every reported accountability measure where there are at least 30 denominator cases; and 3) have at least one core measure set that has a composite rate of 95 percent or above, and within that measure set all applicable individual accountability measures have a performance rate of 95 percent or above. A 95 percent score means a hospital provided an evidence-based practice 95 times out of 100 opportunities. Each accountability measure represents an evidence-based practice – examples include giving aspirin at arrival for heart attack patients, giving antibiotics one hour before surgery, or providing a home management plan of care for children with asthma.

“I am proud to lead the team of professionals demonstrating an exceptional commitment to quality improvement for our Veterans,” remarked Marie L. Weldon, FACHE, Director, South Texas Veterans Health Care System. “Our patients deserve the very best. This recognition by The Joint Commission proves that we go to work every day focusing on ways we can serve them better.”

In addition to being included in today’s release of The Joint Commission’s “Improving America’s Hospitals” annual report, South Texas Veterans Health Care System will be recognized on The Joint Commission’s Quality Check website (http://www.qualitycheck.org). The Top Performer program will be featured in the December issues of The Joint Commission Perspectives and The Source.
