GVH Achieves National Ranking for Highest Value-Based Purchasing
(February 24, 2014) Sellersville, PA – Grand View Hospital has earned top 16 national ranking under Medicare’s fiscal year 2014 value-based purchasing program. According to Hospital Compare data, Grand View was ranked 16 out of more than 2,700 hospitals and number one in the region.
“I am fortunate to work in an organization with physicians and staff so committed to providing the best care possible,” commented Jean M. Keeler, JD, president and CEO at Grand View Hospital. “Being recognized at this level demonstrates the commitment and dedication to quality of our entire staff.”
Each hospital's individual score for the Value-Based Program (VBP) focuses on three main areas: clinical process of care, patient experience of care and outcomes. Medicare uses VBP to reward hospitals for improving quality of care, reimbursing a higher percentage of Medicare payments to those hospitals that performed well on healthcare quality measures as well as in patient satisfaction.
