Cuts threaten quality of care

The size of the problem: Quality 

  • 15% of patients admitted to hospital suffer an adverse event. 
  • 8% of adverse events result in death. 
  • 6% of adverse events result in permanent disability. 
  • 10-20% al all adverse events are caused by medication errors. 
  • 10-15% of hospital admissions occur because providers do not have access to previous core records. 
  • 20% of laboratory tests are requested because the results of previous investigations are not accessible. 

Healthcare is challenged by three crises that make present healthcare systems unsustainable:
 
  • Rising Costs 
  • Changing Demographics 
  • Quality of Care 

Significant changes in health care call for us to expand our resolutions to include community considerations as well. In 2012, important hospital priorities will be defined that affects everyone. 

Health care is experiencing a paradigm shift unrivaled in the last 25 years. Providers are re-engineering processes to make way for increased access and improved quality at lower costs. Providers, payers and networks generally agree that this is the ideal destination for our industry, but the ways we'll get there are as varied as the populations we serve. Everything is on the table, and no service can be taken for granted. 

Those intermediate decisions can have a big impact on our community's quality of care, which impacts far more than individual patients. A healthier community that receives primary care in medical homes instead of emergency rooms can be tied to better jobs, better schools and an overall elevated quality of life. And access to a robust continuum of services that includes everything from preventive to lifesaving trauma care matters just as much.
