Tracking Health Care Measures
These reports list Scripps Health’s performance on a number of nationally-recognized quality indicators and practices. This information is the most current available for Scripps Health, though the lengthy process of rating performance criteria means it may be rating our performance of several months ago.
These indicators are also reported by a number of independent organizations (see Quality Resources). These “outside” reports rate performance at Scripps Health but are less current.
In addition to these primary reports, we also internally track hundreds of other measures. We’re always working to optimize patient safety, identify and share best care practices, and target areas for improvement.
Hospital quality reports are a valuable tool in helping consumers choose appropriate health care providers. However, the reports are only one of several important factors to consider when making health care decisions.
