Quality measures track a variety of evidence-based, scientifically-researched standards of care which have been shown to result in improved clinical outcomes for patients. The results are submitted on a quarterly basis to The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) which publicly reports the data to aid in hospital improvement efforts and transparency with the public. The data displayed below provides a comparison of quality measures at Heritage Valley Health System along side the most recently reported performance data for hospitals throughout Pennsylvania and the United States. To access this data with additional detail, connect to the CMS reporting web site through the link Hospital Compare.
