Core Measures

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), along with its collaborators in the Hospital Quality Alliance (HQA) and the nation's hospitals are working together to create and publicly report hospital quality information.

This information measures how well hospitals care for their adult patients, regardless of whether the care was paid for by Medicare, Medicaid or a private health insurance plan. Hospitals can vary in the quality of care they provide.  The hospital quality measures advocate care for a number of the most common and expensive conditions that hospitals treat. Getting the recommended care means you are more likely to have better outcomes.

Health care experts and researchers are constantly evaluating the evidence to make sure that guidelines and measures continue to reflect the most up-to-date information. Sometimes, guidelines and measures are modified to reflect new evidence. This dashboard is a summary of the Hospital Compare website (http://www.hospitalcompare.hhs.gov/) findings at Southeast Hospital for the following matters:
