Member Activities RE: Medicare Quality Measure

We have 84 hospitals who are Full members. Fifteen (18%) responded to our questionnaire on quality activities. 11 (73%) are involved in an activity. 4 (27%) either don’t know or are not involved in an activity.

How are our members involved? They are doing literature searches and document delivery and/or are participating in their hospital’s efforts (committee, project, task force) addressing one or more of the Medicare metrics.

Top three Medicare effective care metrics with librarian involvement:

  • 5 (71%) Discharge Instructions
  • 4 (57%) Averting Blood Clots in Surgery Patients
  • 4 (57%) Averting Catheter Infections

 Top three Medicare patient satisfaction metrics with librarian involvement:

  • 5 (71%) How well nurses communicated with patients.
  • 5 (71%) How well doctors communicated with patients.
  • 4 (57%) How clean and quiet the hospital room and hall were.

Thanks to all who completed our questionnaire. More information in the April Plains to Peaks Post issue.
