Aurora Health Care Top Quality System in Nation in Medicare, Premier Healthcare Alliance Pay-For-Performance Project
Date:6/17/2008

pitals are effective at improving the quality of inpatient care. Through the project, which was launched in 2003 and extended by CMS for an additional three years, Premier collects a set of more than 30 evidence-based clinical quality measures from over 250 hospitals across the country. The quality measures were developed by government and private organizations (for more information on the indicators, visit: http://www.qualitydemo.com).

Hospital Quality Incentive Demonstration tracks process and outcome measures in five clinical areas -- acute myocardial infarction (AMI), heart failure, coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), pneumonia, and hip and knee replacement.

Improvements in quality of care saved an estimated 2,500 acute myocardial infarction (AMI/heart attack) patients across the first three years of the project, according to an analysis of mortality rates at hospitals participating in the project. In addition, patients received approximately 300,000 additional recommended evidence-based clinical quality measures, such as smoking cessation, discharge instructions and pneumococcal vaccination, during that same timeframe.

For hospitals participating in the Hospital Quality Incentive Demonstration project, the average Composite Quality Score (CQS), an aggregate of all quality measures within each clinical area, improved by 4.4 percent between the project's second and third year for total gains of 15.8 percent over the project's first three years.
