Hospital Confident Report Will Provide Patients with the Best Criteria for Making Decisions Related to Their Orthopedic Care

Online PR News – 01-February-2014 – Irvine, Calif. – As part of a national trend of transparency in healthcare, Hoag Orthopedic Institute (HOI) announced the publication of its 2014 Outcomes Report which provides detailed information about the previous year’s infection and readmission rates, surgical volume figures, and patient satisfaction data along with other key benchmark statistics.
In addition to the data and statistics on infection rates and volume, the report also highlights performance improvement initiatives, distinctions and innovations, details on the new education and research program, compelling patient testimonials, and much more.

“As many healthcare organizations strive to improve performance, drive innovation and foster value-based initiatives, Hoag Orthopedic Institute is at the forefront and going one step further by providing transparency as well,” said Sopida Andronaco, RN, Director of Performance Improvement and Clinical Outcomes for HOI. “While our primary motivation is to raise the bar in clinical excellence for our patients, we also want to ensure other healthcare providers are able to do the same,” she added.

Hoag Orthopedic Institute’s annual outcomes report has become a valuable resource for orthopedic care providers internationally who seek ways to improve upon the care they provide. Additionally, as patients become much more aware of the importance of selecting physicians and facilities with track-records of stellar quality of care, many have been empowered and encouraged by the assurance that they are choosing a top-ranking facility and care team.

“Our outcomes team has once again gone above and beyond in their provision of relevant and persuasive information that will appeal to administrators, fellow clinicians, and most importantly, our patients,” said Dr. Robert Gorab, Chief Medical Officer of HOI. “The entire HOI staff works tirelessly to continually reach this exemplary level of excellence and we are proud to show the fruits of our labor.”

Hoag Orthopedic Institute is the highest volume provider of joint replacement procedures in California and has been named one of the top 50 U.S. hospitals for outstanding orthopedic care by U.S. News & World Report for two consecutive years. In addition, HOI ranks in the 99th percentile for overall hospital rating and likelihood to recommend the hospital according to HCAHPS, the national patient survey and rating system overseen by CMS.
