Michiana Behavioral Health Earns ‘Top Performer on Key Quality Measures”™ Recognition from The Joint Commission for the 2nd Year in a Row
(Plymouth, IN. 11/11/2013) – Michiana Behavioral Health today was named one of the nation’s Top Performers on Key Quality Measures® by The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health care organizations in America. Michiana Behavioral Health was recognized by The Joint Commission for exemplary performance in using evidence-based clinical processes that are shown to improve care for certain conditions as well as inpatient psychiatric services.
Michiana Behavioral Health is one of 1,099 hospitals in the U.S. earning the distinction of Top Performer on Key Quality Measures® for attaining and sustaining excellence in accountability measure performance. Michiana Behavioral Health was recognized for its achievement on the Hospital Based Inpatient Psychiatric Services (HBIPS) measures. The ratings are based on an aggregation of accountability measure data reported to The Joint Commission during the 2012 calendar year. The list of Top Performers represents 33 percent of all Joint Commission-accredited hospitals reporting accountability measure performance data for 2012.
Each of the hospitals that were named as a Top Performer on Key Quality Measures must: 1) achieve cumulative performance of 95 percent or above across all reported accountability measures: 2) achieve performance of 95 percent or above on each and every reported accountability measure where there are at least 30 denominator cases: and 3) have at least one core measure set that has a composite rate of 95 percent or above, and within that measure set all applicable individual accountability measures have a performance rate of 95 percent or above. A 95 percent score means a hospital provided an evidence-based practice 95 times out of 100 opportunities.
“Michiana Behavioral Health and all the Top Performer hospitals have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to quality improvement and they should be proud of their achievement,” says Mark R. Chassin, M.D., FACP, M.P.P., M.P.H., president and chief executive officer of The Joint Commission. “This capacity for continual improvement points toward a future in which quality and safety defects are dramatically reduced and high reliability is sought and achieved with regularity.
In addition to being included in today’s release of The Joint Commission’s “Improving America’s Hospitals’ annual report, Michiana Behavioral Health will be recognized on The Joint Commission’s Quality Check website (www.qualitycheck.org). The Top Performer program will be featured in the December issues of The Joint Commission Perspectives and The Joint Commission: The Source.
