Lane Regional Medical Center Earns 'Top Performer on Key Quality Measures®' Recognition from The Joint Commission

Lane Regional Medical Center has been recognized as a 2013 Top Performer on Key Quality Measures® by The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health care organizations in the United States.

Lane Regional is one of only 22 hospitals in Louisiana and one of 1,224 hospitals in the United States to achieve the 2013 Top Performer distinction.

The Joint Commission's 2014 annual report "America's Hospitals: Improving Quality and Safety," recognized Lane Regional for improving performance on evidence-based interventions that increase the chances of healthy outcomes for patients, as well as attaining and sustaining excellence in accountability measure performance for Heart Attack, Heart Failure, Pneumonia and Surgical Care.

To be a 2013 Top Performer, hospitals had to meet three performance criteria based on 2013 accountability measure data, including:

  • Achieving cumulative performance of 95 percent or above across all reported accountability measures;

  • Achieving performance of 95 percent or above on each and every reported accountability measure where there were at least 30 denominator cases; and

  • Having at least one core measure set that had a composite rate of 95 percent or above, and (within that measure set) all applicable individual accountability measures had a performance rate of 95 percent or above.

"Delivering the right treatment in the right way at the right time is not only what patients expect, but it is also a cornerstone of high-quality health care," says Randy Olson, CEO of Lane Regional. "I commend the efforts of our team at Lane for their excellent performance on the use of evidence-based interventions. We are proud to be named a Top Performer as it recognizes the knowledge, teamwork and dedication of our entire hospital staff."
