Process of Care Measures

National Quality Improvement Goals

Why these measures are important

These goals represent optimal care for treating patients with the following common conditions: heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, children's asthma, and preventing surgical infection. Together, these conditions affect hundreds of thousands of patients each year. Patients who are treated according to these guidelines are more likely to improve and/or have good outcomes of care.

Health care providers and practitioners recognize these as "desirable goals" for treating patients with the identified conditions.

Erlanger's approach to improving quality

Every day Erlanger strives to provide exceptional care...every time. We are continually working toward improving our scores. Process and quality oversight teams made up of doctors, nurses, product line administrators, and process improvement experts actively measure and assess day-to-day operations.
