VA performance quality

VA Hospital

According to Northwestern University researchers, VA hospitals outperform non-VA hospitals on most quality measures.

Friday, April 27, 2012
According to researchers from Northwestern University, VA hospitals outperform non-VA hospitals on most quality measures. The researchers, who examined quality data available on the Hospital Compare website, reported their findings in JAMA Internal Medicine.   

Researchers compared hospital-level quality data on 129 VA hospitals and 4,010 non-VA hospitals obtained through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid’s website. They found VA hospitals had better outcomes than non-VA hospitals on six of nine patient safety indicators, and there were no significant differences on the other three indicators.  

These findings attest to VA’s intense focus on quality improvement and care coordination over the past 30 years. VA patients benefit from receiving their health care in a highly integrated system with a single electronic health record. 

Thank you to all our Veterans who continue to entrust us with the sacred mission of providing the high-quality health care they have earned and deserve.
