FORT WAYNE — Parkview Regional Medical Center is the first hospital in the state to be recognized as a top performer in the Midas+ Platinum Quality Award program. The Midas+ Platinum Quality Awards recognize industry leadership and hospital excellence and are based on achievement and data-driven performance.
“It’s important to us that our patients receive the highest quality of care, and also that our physicians and caregivers continue to be innovative in the way they deliver and improve that care,” said Ben Miles, president, Parkview Regional Medical Center and affiliates. “This award reinforces Parkview’s mission to provide the excellence, innovation and value our communities seek when it comes to healthcare quality and care.”
Each year, Midas+ Solutions, a Xerox company, asks its customers to complete a quality scorecard and the hospitals that rank in the top five percent are honored with a Midas+ Platinum Quality Award. The scorecard includes data on utilization efficiency and outcomes, including length of stay, mortality, average daily census, re-admissions and more. Hospitals can gain a clear picture of how they’re doing and also compare their performance against other hospitals.
“Data-driven performance analytics are essential to helping healthcare providers improve the health of patients while driving operational efficiency,” said Clayton Nicholas, senior vice president and general manager, Midas+ Solutions, A Xerox Company. “The Midas+ Platinum Quality Award recognizes hospitals that excel at using data in a meaningful way to improve clinical and financial outcomes.”
Midas+ Solutions grants the Platinum Quality Award to organizations that score in the top five percent among their eligible peers in the Midas+ Comparative Database, which consists of nearly 800 hospitals. Peer groups are divided into three categories: Average daily census less than 100, average daily census between 100 and 200 and average daily census greater than 200. Parkview Regional Medical Center was selected as a top performer in the average daily census greater than 200 category.
