Clinical Indicators

Clinical Indicators

One way to judge health care quality is to measure the efficiency and extent to which specific assessments and treatments are provided. Administering aspirin to heart attack patients is one example. When this is done within 24 hours of a heart attack, the patient's chances of survival increase.

St. Joseph measures widely accepted clinical indicators in cases of heart attack (acute myocardial infarction), heart failure (congestive heart failure) and pneumonia - three of the most common reasons for hospitalization. These evidence-based measures were developed by The Joint Commission (TJC), in conjunction with the American Hospital Association (AHA) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
