The Center for Medicare/Medicaid (Federal Government), The Joint Commission and the Hospital Quality Alliance evaluate and compare a hospital’s compliance with Core Measures.

Patient Care Improvement Projects

Core Measures are evidence-based expected patient care and the best care for you and your family. Core Measures evaluate how often and quickly each hospital gives recommended treatments for certain conditions like heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, children’s asthma, stroke, influenza, and blood clots, and follow best practices to prevent surgical complications.
