At Anderson Regional Health System, quality is measured in outcomes achieved; in the compliance with evidence-based processes known to enhance care; in the volume of patients successfully treated; and in the safety record of the system.
Anderson Regional Health System delivers quality health care using proven therapies to treat our patients. In doing so, we adhere to a set of widely accepted clinical indicators. These evidence-based measures were developed by The Joint Commission (TJC), in conjunction with the American Hospital Association (AHA) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) utilizing a value-based, disease centered approach.
Anderson rigorously measures patient safety and other clinical indicators to ensure we are exceeding current standards and setting new benchmarks for quality. We want you to feel confident choosing Anderson as your healthcare provider. It is our goal to provide timely, accurate, safe and effective, patient-centered care. We strive to create a high-reliability culture that fosters and supports patient safety as a core value. We are committed to delivering the best possible clinical care to our patients. We benchmark and measure our performance against other hospitals across the country. Anderson leaders evaluate quality and patient safety based on process and outcomes data in order to ensure exceptional patient outcomes.
Our commitment to quality begins with the Board of Directors and the Executive Staff. They ensure commitment by hardwiring processes to monitor and analyze patient experience and outcome data. Quality initiatives are then developed when indicated. These initiatives are executed as close to the bedside as possible. The organization’s Strategic Initiatives are evaluated annually and serve as the framework for quality and process improvement throughout the organization. An Annual Quality Report is then published each year and provided for the medical staff, executive staff as well as the board and the entire leadership team to share with their departments.
