Logan — Cache Valley Hospital has been presented with the 2013 HealthInsight Quality Award for demonstrating high quality health care and excellence in performance on publicly reported quality of care and patients’ perception of care measures.
The HealthInsight Quality Award acknowledges hospitals that achieve high levels of performance on care related to publicly reported quality measures.
In addition to publicly reported quality of care measures, hospitals that qualified for the HealthInsight Quality Award performed well on the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) measures. HCAHPS is a national survey that asks patients about their experiences during a recent hospital stay.
“HealthInsight commends Cache Valley Hospital for its commitment to excellence in improving patient care,” said Marc Bennett, president and CEO of HealthInsight.
The HealthInsight Quality Award Program was launched in September 2004 to promote transparency in health care. According to the Institute of Medicine, transparency in health care means a system that is “accountable to the public, works openly, makes results known, and builds trust through disclosure.” By using available quality data to identify high performing providers and publicizing the results, HealthInsight aims to help providers improve health care and help patients become more active and informed participants in that care.
“The staff at Cache Valley Hospital is dedicated to providing the very best in patient care and our efforts have been enhanced through our quality improvement collaborations with HealthInsight. We are proud to be a recipient of this distinguished award,” said John Worley, CEO.
