HF 30-Day Readmission Rate (%) Performance measures from Truven’s analysis showed an overall improvement for cardiovascular outcomes at U.S. hospitals. Benchmark hospitals are the winners in the comparison group. Peer hospitals are the non-winners in the comparison group. AMI refers to acute myocardial infarction patients. HF refers to heart failure patients.

“I think the biggest reason for the 0.80 success of St. Luke’s Cardiovascular 0.70 program – both medical and 0.60 surgical – is the multidisciplinary 0.50 approach that we use with 0.40 engaged physicians, dedicated and highly competent staff and an administration that provides the resources, infrastructure and support for all involved to provide state-of-the-art care for cardiac HOSPITAL HEART 24.0 patients,” Langager said. “This is very much a team approach with 20.0 active involvement from every 16.0 individual. By adhering to known quality metrics and utilizing the 12.0 resources and processes developed 8.0 in a collaborative environment, we have been able to demonstrate 4.0 St. Luke’s patients have better 0.0 outcomes. And that is confirmed by being designated as a Top 50 Heart Hospital.”

The study, published in Modern Healthcare in October 2012, evaluated general and applicable specialty, short-term, acute care, non-federal U.S. hospitals treating a broad spectrum of cardiology patients. Truven Health Analytics researchers analyzed 2010 and 2011 Medicare Provider Analysis and Review (MedPAR) data, 2010 Medicare cost reports, and 2012 Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Compare data. They scored hospitals in key performance areas: risk-adjusted mortality, risk-adjusted complications, core measures (a group of measures that assess process of care), percentage of coronary bypass patients with internal mammary artery use, 30-day mortality rates, 30-day readmission rates, severity-adjusted average length of stay, and wage- and severity-adjusted average cost.
