ApolloMD Partner Hospitals Named “Top Performers” by The Joint Commission
November 18, 2015—ApolloMD is proud to recognize 17 of our partner hospitals who were recently recognized by The Joint Commission as “Top Performers” in their 2015 Annual Report. This year’s report summarizes performance data collected during 2014 on 49 accountability measures of care in 12 measure sets – the most diverse set of data ever collected from American hospitals by The Joint Commission.
New this year, seven accountability measures were added, including six measures within two new measure sets relating to tobacco treatment and substance use, as well as an additional measure for the inpatient psychiatric services measure set. The Joint Commission also increased from four to six required number of selected core measure sets for which acute care hospitals must submit data. The additional measures, measure sets and reporting requirements set the bar higher and slightly reduced the number of Joint Commission-accredited hospitals achieving Top Performer status.
Our partner hospitals included in the Top Performers are:
