The Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association (VHHA) maintains Quality & Patient Safety Scorecards – an interactive, online tool that enables users to review data showing hospital-specific performance on key quality, safety, and patient satisfaction measures. The latest batch of updated data shows a continuing trend of steady improvement by Virginia hospitals on several health care measures in 2016 when reductions in five key areas were achieved. That builds upon 2015 data showing statewide improvement in 13 metric categories measuring performance on reducing readmissions after treatment for certain heart conditions or hip and knee replacements, infection prevention, patient satisfaction, and other measures.
