Johnston Health voluntarily participates in quality and performance surveys to measure our adherence to standards set by The Joint Commission and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The data from these surveys is used to compare our quality of care with other hospitals throughout North Carolina and the nation.
The Core Measures are derived from a set of quality indicators defined by the CMS. These indicators have been shown to reduce the risk of complications and prevent recurrences in the majority of patients who come to a hospital for treatment of a condition or illness. Core Measures help hospitals improve the quality of patient care by focusing on the actual results of care.
Below are the Core Measure results for care and treatment for heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgery, emergency treatment, and immunizations at Johnston Health for 2012. View our glossary of terms for a better understanding of specific conditions.
