What does Appropriate Care Performance Measure?
The Appropriate Care Performance Measure is an overall measurement of how well the hospital is doing the best practices to improve patient responses to treatment. This means that Frisbie is meeting National Goals for treatment of:
- Heart Attack Care (also known as Acute Myocardial Infarction)
- Heart Failure (Damaged Heart Muscle)
- Community Acquired Pneumonia
- Surgical Care (Prevention of Complications)
- Immunization Prevention to Inpatients
Prevention of Unplanned Readmissions to the Hospital
Hospitalizations are costly and sometimes dangerous. Readmissions are re-hospitalizations within 30 days of a previous hospitalization. Your Provider is working with you to prevent hospitalization and when you are hospitalized the staff is working with you to effectively recover so you will not have to be re-hospitalized. Frisbie is exploring how to prevent unplanned readmissions.
Please follow up with your provider regularly to discuss management and prevention.
