Las Vegas, NV — MountainView Hospital and Southern Hills Hospital were presented the 2014 HealthInsight Quality Award for demonstrating high quality health care and excellence in performance on publicly reported quality of care and patients' perception of care measures.

The HealthInsight Quality Award acknowledges hospitals that achieve high levels of performance on the care related to the publicly reported quality measures:

  • Statin prescribed at discharge
  • Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) within 90 minutes of arrival

  • Treatment to prevent blood clots within 24 hours before or after selected surgeries
  • Doctor ordered treatments to prevent blood clots for certain types of surgeries

The clinical topics measured for the awards have been designated as national healthcare priorities by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

In addition to publicly reported quality of care measures, hospitals that qualified for the HealthInsight Quality Award performed well on the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) measures. HCAHPS is a national survey that asks patients about their experiences during a recent hospital stay.

HealthInsight commends MountainView and Southern Hills for their commitment to excellence in improving patient care,” said Marc Bennett, President and CEO of HealthInsight.

The HealthInsight Quality Award program was launched in September 2004 to promote transparency in health care. According to the Institute of Medicine, transparency in health care means a system that is “accountable to the public, works openly, makes results known, and builds trust through disclosure.” By using available quality data to identify high performing providers and publicizing the results, HealthInsight aims to help providers improve health care and help patients become more active and informed participants in that care.

“The staff at MountainView is dedicated to providing the very best in patient care and our efforts have been enhanced through our quality improvement collaborations with HealthInsight. We are proud to be a recipient of this distinguished award,” said Chris Mowan, CEO, MountainView Hospital.

“Southern Hills Hospital is committed to providing the safest environment to our patients and their families,” said Kimball Anderson, CEO, Southern Hills Hospital. “It is critically important to our team that we deliver high quality care to each patient, every time, and we are grateful to HealthInsight for recognizing our efforts.”
