The Overall Hospital Quality Star Rating is one of 10 measures provided by CMS to help consumers choose a hospital that is right for them. These ratings are based on a number of factors, including patient safety and outcomes, readmissions, and patient experience. The rating system provides a clear and simple way for consumers to make an informed choice when selecting a health care provider.
The ratings are based on data collected from hospitals across the country. The information is analyzed to create a score that compares the performance of each hospital against similar hospitals in their area. The score is then used to assign a star rating that is nationally published. The overall star rating is based on a scale of one to five stars. The higher the star rating, the better the hospital performs. The rating is updated on an annual basis.
Alpena Regional Medical Center is rated three stars, indicating that it is above average in the country for providing safe, effective treatment. The hospital also has very few readmissions and low infection rates. In addition, the hospital has many physicians on staff who specialize in a variety of areas.
MyMichigan Health Center Alpena President Michael Erickson says the news is good news for the community. He hopes that the hospital will continue to improve. He is especially pleased with the results of the patient survey. The hospital scored better than the national average in seven of the ten questions asked in the patient surveys. He said that the results are in line with the hospital’s performance in the Leapfrog Group survey.
In order to receive the highest possible rating, a hospital must meet national standards on all of the measures that are included in the scoring process. The ratings are based on information collected from patients in an anonymous, voluntary survey. The results are then evaluated by an independent organization to determine the hospital’s overall performance.
