MBSH | Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital is a winner of the 2017 Vizient Bernard A. Birnbaum, MD, Quality Leadership Award. The award recognizes MBSH for demonstrating superior quality and safety performance as measured by the Vizient Quality and Accountability Study, which has been conducted annually since 2005. The award was presented Sept. 14 during the 2017 Vizient Clinical Connections Summit held in Denver, Colo.
“I’m pleased to receive the recognition this award represents,” says MBSH president Tony Schwarm. “This award is the result of the dedication of our providers and staff. The leadership at MBSH is committed to providing the safe, high quality care that every patient deserves.”
This year, 107 academic medical centers and 161 community hospitals were included in the Vizient Quality and Accountability Study. The study measured performance based on the Institute of Medicine’s six domains of care: safety, timeliness, effectiveness, efficiency, equity and patient centeredness.
The composite scoring system uses patient-level performance data from a variety of sources, including the Vizient Clinical Data Base, the Vizient Core Measures Data Base, the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Healthcare Safety Network.
The Vizient Quality and Accountability Study helps academic medical centers and community hospitals identify structures and processes associated with high performance in quality and safety across a broad spectrum of patient care activity.
“Leading hospitals today are leveraging advanced analytics and innovative technology to most efficiently provide superior patient experiences and clinical outcomes while managing costs,” says Byron Jobe, Vizient president and chief administrative officer. “By winning this award, Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital exemplifies a leadership style that is focused on results and a culture of collaboration and adaptability that is necessary to succeed during this time of uncertainty and change in the health care industry. We congratulate them on their achievement.”
