Patient safety and clinical quality


Striving to provide exceptional patient care and experience

Fairview's health care providers are committed to providing the best and safest care possible for you and your family. You are the most important member of your health care team.

We encourage you to take an active role in your health care by asking questions and openly communicating with your care providers.

We're committed to transparency
As part of our commitment to transparency, Fairview participates in numerous public reporting systems. We measure the safety and quality of our care as well as the perspective of our patients about the service they receive.

These measurement systems are typically based on scientific evidence, often in collaboration with state and national quality and safety initiatives. Many include measurement which tracks how many patients achieve all treatment goals for their disease or condition when they visit a Fairview clinic or hospital.

These links will take you to sites that track the results of many health care providers. It's common for there to be a lag between data collection and reporting.

NOTE: You may need to type in "Fairview" or the name of the particular Fairview hospital or clinic you're interested in viewing and, in some cases, the clinical condition or service for which you'd like to see results.
