SCIP and HCAHPS Quality Measures

The patient's perspective on the care provided by hospitals is a good gauge of hospital quality and performance. Since 2009, the Maryland Health Care Commission has utilized the results of a national survey of hospital patients to obtain and report on measures of hospital performance. The survey asks a sample of recently discharged patients about important aspects of the care received while in the hospital. The graph shows that Maryland hospitals have improved slightly in 2011 as compared to the previous year. Despite the improvement, Maryland hospitals were only able to achieve 80% or higher on the measure associated with the provision of appropriate discharge instructions.

A number of measures have been developed to assess surgical quality. These measures include process of care measures that are derived from evidence based guidelines. For example, there are studies that show providing a patient with antibiotics at least 1 hour before a surgical incision can prevent infection. The graph shows the performance of Maryland hospitals over time (i.e., 2009, 2010, and 2011) for several process measures focusing on a sample of patients who undergo surgery on an inpatient basis.
