Tanner named one of America’s Top 15 health systems
Tanner Health System, based in Carrollton, GA, has been named one of the Top 15 Health Systems in the nation based on system-wide clinical performance.
The Thomson Reuters 15 Top Health Systems study culled data from more than 300 organizations and singled out 15 hospital systems that achieved superior clinical outcomes based on a composite score of eight measures of quality, patient perception of care and efficiency.
The selected organizations demonstrated lower 30-day mortality rates, better survival rates, fewer complications, shorter hospital stays, fewer 30-day readmissions, fewer patient safety events, higher adherence to evidence-based care, and higher patient satisfaction scores than their peers, according to Thomson Reuters. Data came from the 2010 Medicare Provider Analysis and Review, and the CMS Hospital Compare data sets.
Tanner is utilizing Greenway’s PrimeSUITE integrated electronic health record, practice management and interoperability solutions across its medical group’s nearly 40 ambulatory practices and approximately 120 providers in western Georgia and eastern Alabama to improve the coordination of high-quality, efficient and effective care.
Two other Greenway customers were cited in the study for having ranked in the top 20th percentile of all health systems studied — Cottage Health System, based in Santa Barbara, CA, and Mercy Health Partners, based in Cincinnati, OH.
