Payment & Value of Care


The payment measures add up all payments made for care starting the day the patient enters the hospital and continuing for the next 30 days. This can include payments made to the hospital, doctor’s office, skilled nursing facility, hospice, as well as patient co-pays made during this time. Payments can be from Medicare, other health insurers, or the patients themselves. Looking at how payments vary is one way to see differences in how hospitals and other healthcare providers care for patients.
  • The measures include Medicare beneficiaries 65 years or older who were enrolled in Original Medicare for the entire 12 months before their hospitalization, as well as the 30 days after admission.
  • Read more about this measure here.

Measure Compared to National Avg. # Cases Measured Avg. Medicare Payment
Payment for heart attack patients Greater than the National Average Payment 334 $25,394
Payment for heart failure patients Greater than the National Average Payment 308 $17,498
Payment for pneumonia patients No Different than the National Average Payment 182 $13,715

Readmissions and Death Rate


The 30-day unplanned readmission measures are estimates of unplanned readmission for any cause to any acute care hospital within 30 days of discharge from a hospitalization. The 30-day death (mortality) measures are estimates of deaths from any cause within 30 days of a hospital admission, for patients hospitalized with one of several medical conditions or surgical procedures.
  • The measures include Medicare beneficiaries 65 years or older who were enrolled in Original Medicare for the entire 12 months before their hospitalization, as well as the 30 days after admission. The unplanned readmission measures do not include patients who died during the index admission, or who left the hospital against medical advice.

Timely & Effective care measures

The measures of timely and effective care (also known as “process of care” measures) show
  • The percentage of hospital patients who got treatments known to get the best results for certain common, serious medical conditions or surgical procedures.
  • How quickly hospitals treat patients who come to the hospital with certain medical emergencies, and
  • How well hospitals provide preventive services.

Complications

Measures of serious complications are drawn from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Patient Safety Indicators (PSIs). The overall score for serious complications is based on how often adult patients had certain serious, but potentially preventable, complications related to medical or surgical inpatient hospital care.
Measure Compared to National Avg. # Cases Measured Score
Rate of complications for hip/knee replacement patients No different than the National Rate 452 3.0
Serious blood clots after surgery No different than the National Rate 6195 4.69
A wound that splits open after surgery on the abdomen or pelvis No different than the National Rate 729 1.13
Accidental cuts and tears from medical treatment No different than the National Rate 15988 1.71
Deaths among Patients with Serious Treatable Complications after Surgery No different than the National Rate 227 122.48
Collapsed lung due to medical treatment No different than the National Rate 14934 0.35
Serious complications No different than the National Rate Not Available 0.82
