Mosaic Life Care Named One of the Nation's 100 Top Hospitals
Mosaic Life Care was named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® by Truven Health AnalyticsTM, a leading provider of data-driven analytics and solutions to improve the cost and quality of healthcare.
“The 2016 100 Top Hospitals award winners represent the highest national standards in hospital care and management. They set the benchmarks for peers around the country to follow,” said Jean Chenoweth, senior vice president at Truven Health Analytics. “Hospitals in three out of the five report groups actually reduced overall expense year over year, while improving patient outcomes – exactly the results that the entire industry hopes to attain.”
The study shows that if all hospitals in the U.S. performed at the level of this year's winners:
- More than 104,000 additional lives could be saved.
- Nearly 48,400 additional patients could be complication free.
- $2 billion in inpatient costs could be saved.
- The average patient stay would decrease by half a day.
The Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals® study identifies hospitals and leadership teams that provide the highest level of value to their communities, based on a national balanced scorecard measuring overall organizational performance across 11 key analytic measures including patient care, operational efficiency, and financial stability. The study has been conducted annually since 1993. This is the second time Mosaic Life Care has been recognized with this honor.
“There are many organizations out there who evaluate hospitals and health care based on a variety of metrics and their methodologies are all unique,” said Mark Laney, MD, CEO of Mosaic Life Care. Receiving recognition by one of them is an accomplishment most certainly, but when you begin receiving more than one, it’s a great indicator that the organization is successfully bringing the triple aim of health care … quality of care, patient experience and value … all together.”
Mosaic Life Care’s triple aim focus as well as continued investment in technology has also been recognized by other independent third party measurement organizations such as HealthGrades, The Joint Commission, The Leapfrog Group, U.S. News and World Report and Hospitals and Health Magazine.
To conduct the 100 Top Hospitals study, Truven Health researchers evaluated close to 3,000 short-term, acute-care, nonfederal hospitals. 100 Top Hospitals researchers use risk-adjusted methodologies to analyze public information — Medicare cost reports, Medicare Provider Analysis and Review (MEDPAR) data, and core measures and patient satisfaction data from the CMS Hospital Compare reports. Hospitals do not apply, and winners do not pay to market this honor.
The winning hospitals were announced in the February 28, 2016, edition of Modern Healthcare magazine.
