How & Why We Measure Performance

Ensuring patients receive safe, effective care is an ever-evolving process. We strive to create a "culture of continuous improvement." Regularly monitoring performance allows us to see where we're hitting the mark, and where we can improve. Remaining flexible means we look to these numbers to make informed, timely decisions that translate to better patient safety and outcomes.
