Measuring Care

Core Measures monitor how often patients receive timely recommended treatments for certain medical conditions.

Heart Attack

A heart attack or acute myocardial infarction (MI) occurs when one of the arteries that supplies the heart muscle becomes blocked. A blockage may be caused by a spasm of the artery or by atherosclerosis, which is plaque in the arteries. The blockage results in damaged tissue and a permanent loss of contraction of this portion of the heart muscle. Timely diagnosis and treatment increases your chance of surviving a heart attack. Preventative measures started after successful treatment can help reduce the risk of another heart attack.

Heart Failure

Heart failure is a condition where a problem with the structure or function of the heart prevents it from effectively pumping blood to the rest of the body. The treatment of heart failure requires both an accurate assessment of the heart’s function and therapy to increase the efficiency of the heart and reduce the work required to pump blood effectively.

Surgical Care

In an effort to improve the quality of surgical care and reduce complications, the Surgical Care Improvement Project (SCIP) was started to review several aspects of perioperative care. Measures to reduce postoperative infections, prevent blood clots (venous thromboembolisms or VTE) and other cardiovascular complications are monitored and reported.
