Fairview Northland Earns Top Performer on Key Quality Measures® Recognition

The Joint Commission has recognized Fairview Northland Medical Center as a 2014 Top Performer on Key Quality Measures® based on performance data for 2014.

Fairview Northland is one of only 1,043 hospitals in the United States (out of more than 3,300 eligible hospitals) to achieve the 2014 Top Performer distinction, which recognizes hospitals for improving performance on evidence-based interventions that increase the chances of healthy outcomes for patients with certain conditions, including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care, children’s asthma, stroke, venous thromboembolism and immunizations.

“We understand what matters most to our patients is the quality and safety of the care they receive. That is why we have made these areas top priorities and are focusing on evidence-based care processes,” says John Herman, president, Fairview Northland Medical Center. We are proud to receive this recognition for excellence in pneumonia, surgical care, venous thromboembolism and immunizations.”

To be a 2014 Top Performer, hospitals must meet three criteria based on 2014 performance data, including:

  • Achieving cumulative performance of 95 percent or above across all reported accountability measures;
  • Achieving performance of 95 percent or above on each and every reported accountability measure where there were at least 30 denominator cases; and
  • Having at least one core measure set that had a composite rate of 95 percent or above, and (within that measure set) all applicable individual accountability measures had a performance rate of 95 percent or above.

“We are pleased to be recognized by The Joint Commission for the quality care we provide. Our results underscore the hard work being done by our teams to ensure we’re delivering the best possible care,” says John.
