Payson, UT – Mountain View Hospital in Payson is among only two in Utah County and six in Utah to achieve the 2012 HealthInsight Quality Award for its high level of performance on publicly reported quality of care measures. It is the fourth consecutive year that this Utah County hospital has performed well on nationally established clinical care measures. HealthInsight also included measurements of patients’ perception of the care they received at hospitals in Utah and Nevada.
“The staff at Mountain View Hospital is dedicated to providing the very best in patient care and our efforts have been enhanced through our quality improvement collaborations with HealthInsight,” states Kevin Johnson, CEO at Mountain View Hospital in Payson. “It is good to know that our quality improvement initiatives not only achieved a higher level of patient care, but also this distinguished award – once again.”
The HealthInsight Quality Award is given to hospitals that achieve a high-level of performance on applying publicly reported quality of care processes. It acknowledges active engagement in advancing care in one or more of the following treatment areas, as set forth by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS):
- Heart attack
- Heart failure
- Surgical Infection Prevention
A hospital must rank at or above the 75th percentile in national Hospital Compare rankings to earn the annual HealthInsight Quality Award. This means that Mountain View Hospital performed better than 75 percent of all 36 reporting hospitals in Utah and healthcare providers nationwide. Patients’ perceptions of care, publicly reported as HCAHPS measures, were weighted at 30 percent. This combined data is posted on Hospital Compare and reflects the performance period of Oct. 1, 2010 – Sept. 30, 2011.
