How We Measure Quality and SafetyHow We Measure Quality and Safety
To Scott & White, quality and safety is an overall look at your experience. There is not a simple way to measure these metrics, so we put effort into every patient interaction or process.
Quality can be measured by patient's opinions, compliance with procedures, or success of patient treatments. Even more, quality and safety can be measured by making sure you are treated with respect, taken care of efficiently, and comfortable with your care.
One way organizations measure quality and safety is through key metrics based on reports, opinions, or procedures. We take pride in our healthcare, and provide the following metrics as one way to analyze the level of your care.
