Every year Healthgrades evaluates hospital performance at nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 33 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions.The achievement is part of findings released in the Healthgrades 2016 Report to the Nation. The report demonstrates how clinical performance continues to differ dramatically between hospitals both nationally and regionally. This variation in care has a significant impact on health outcomes. For example, from 2012 through 2014, if all hospitals as a group, performed similarly to hospitals receiving 5 stars as a group, on average 222,392 lives could potentially have been saved and 166,086 complications could potentially have been avoided. A 5-star rating indicates that Huntington Hospital’s clinical outcomes are statistically significantly better than expected when treating the condition or conducting the procedure being evaluated.Huntington Hospital not only performs at a 5-star level in stroke care, it outperforms other hospitals in the nation in stroke care and as a result has been recognized with the 2016 Healthgrades Stroke Care Excellence Award™.“We are proud to receive the Healthgrades Stroke Care Excellence Award for the second year in a row – it is a true reflection of the expert, compassionate care provided by our staff,” said Arbi Ohanian, MD, medical director of Huntington Hospital’s Primary Stroke Center. “With a stroke, time lost is brain lost. This recognition further demonstrates our commitment to delivering advanced stroke treatments to patients quickly and safely.”For its analysis, Healthgrades evaluated approximately 40 million Medicare inpatient records for nearly 4,500 short-term acute care hospitals nationwide, and assessed hospital performance relative to each of 33 common conditions and procedures. Healthgrades recognizes a hospital’s quality achievements for cohort-specific performance, specialty area performance, and overall clinical quality. Individual procedure or condition cohorts are designated as 5 star (statistically significantly better than expected), 3 star (not statistically different from expected), and 1 star (statistically significantly worse than expected) categories. The complete Healthgrades 2016 Report to the Nation with detailed cohort-specific outcomes data, hospital-specific quality achievements, and detailed study methodology, can be found at www.healthgrades.com/quality.*Statistics are based on Healthgrades analysis of MedPAR data for years 2012 through 2014 and represent 3-year estimates for Medicare patients only.

Employers still putting in to company pension plans

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article Ninety-five per cent of employers still make contributions to companypension schemes for existing employees. The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) annual rewardsurvey polled 500 HR professionals, and not only found large-scale use oforganisational pension schemes, but also that many companies plan to increasetheir contributions rather than close pension schemes this year. The results, released at the CIPD’s annual reward conference in London lastweek, reveal that 87 per cent of employers make contributions to new employees’pension schemes. However, employers are changing the types of schemes on offer, with a markeddifference in the way that existing and new employees are treated. Nearly halfthe UK’s employers provide existing staff with a defined benefit (final salary)pension scheme. These schemes are often seen as the best form of pension provision, as theyare normally based on the salary at or near retirement and on length ofservice. Under defined contribution schemes, each person has an individual accountwhich is invested, and its value on retirement is used to provide the pensionbenefit. However, for new employees, two-fifths of organisations now offer a definedcontribution plan (also known as a money purchase scheme), with just a thirdproviding a defined benefit scheme. Charles Cotton, CIPD adviser, reward and employment, said most organisationssee the benefits that offering a pension scheme has on recruitment andretention. He said there is, however, a move from defined benefit to definedcontribution: “The shift has been around for a while, but has become morenoticeable because more companies are going down that path.” Of those planning to make changes to their existing pension arrangements,about 35 per cent plan to close final salary schemes to new employers in 2003. www.cipd.co.ukBy Quentin ReadePension arrangements for new employees% OFEMPLOYEES                           Senior                          middle/first                  non-manual                 manualnon-    management               management               non-management        managementDefined contribution/                             39                                42                                42                                43money purchase planDefined benefit/                                    35                                32                                32                                33final salary planPersonal pension                                   22                                21                                19                                18Stakeholder pension                             15                                16                                18                                16Hybrid (mixture of DC and DB)            2                                  2                                  2                                  2Source: CIPD Comments are closed.
