LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY, USA, October 1, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- For the past five years, The SafeCare Group® has monitored the quality, safety, and efficiency of healthcare delivered by US hospitals. The SafeCare group has published its 2018 100 SafeCare Hospitals® Performance Report in SafeCare® magazine. The report compared and contrasted 100 100 SafeCare Hospitals performance against other US hospitals in three Centers of Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) key areas: Hospital Value Based Program (HVBP), Hospitals Readmissions Reduction Program (HRRP), and Hospital Acquired Conditions Program (HACRP). Broadly speaking, these programs measure evidence-based metrics pertaining to 30-day medical and surgical readmissions, medical and surgical infections, 30-day medical and surgical mortality rates, complications for medical and surgical care, patient satisfaction, and efficiency of care.

“The 2018 100 SafeCare Hospitals Report highlighted significant trends in US healthcare delivery,” said Yisrael M Safeek, MD, MBA, CEO of The SafeCare Group. “The report focused on performance gaps between our 100 SafeCare Hospitals and other US hospitals.”

100 SafeCare Hospitals have achieved an exemplary level of performance in the comprehensive, evidence-based metrics of HVBP, HRRP, and HACRP. Hospitals that perform poorly on these quality, safety, and efficiency metrics receive a financial penalty from the government's CMS. The report focused on performance gaps between 100 SafeCare Hospitals and other US hospitals and covered performance for the years 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018. The report was published in the 2018 3rd Edition of SafeCare magazine and a copy of the magazine could be purchased from the magazine’s website at:
