Beyond the Metrics

Beyond the Metrics

April 2nd, 2018 | Clinical ConnectionsNews

While we remain proud of our metric performance and our improvement over the last few years thanks to everyone’s efforts, we have come to realize that the metric attainment alone doesn’t highlight the health improvements that our performance has brought in our population. Next month, we hope to begin to translate our metric performance into data showing the benefits to our patients earned through our hard work in reaching our goals in the metrics. For instance, we plan to demonstrate how many heart attacks, strokes, cases of hypertensive nephropathy, hospitalizations and deaths prevented each year by our success in achieving control of hypertension. We will continue to “tell the story” of our performance so we can share these accounts with patients and fellow providers when they ask what AHP has accomplished!
