Timely and Effective Care by National

$179 / year

This dataset includes National-level data for measures of heart attack care, heart failure care, pneumonia care, surgical care, emergency department care, preventive care, children’s asthma care, stroke care, blood clot prevention and treatment, and pregnancy and delivery care.

Complexity

The measures of timely and effective care (also known as “process of care” measures) show the percentage of hospital patients who got treatments known to get the best results for certain common, serious medical conditions or surgical procedures; how quickly hospitals treat patients who come to the hospital with certain medical emergencies; and how well hospitals provide preventive services.

These measures only apply to patients for whom the recommended treatment would be appropriate. The measures of timely and effective care apply to adults and children treated at hospitals paid under the Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) or the Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS), as well as those that voluntarily report data on measures for whom the recommended treatments would be appropriate including Medicare patients, Medicare managed care patients, and non-Medicare patients. Timely and effective care measures are also referred to as process of care measures and include acute myocardial infarction, heart failure, pneumonia, Surgical Care Improvement Project (SCIP), emergency department, preventive care, children’s asthma care, stroke care, blood clot prevention and treatment, and pregnancy and delivery care measures.

IMM-3 and OP-27 are combined and reported as one measure rather than listing the measures separately. The Measure ID IMM-3_OP-27 includes data from both the inpatient measure IMM-3, and the outpatient measure OP-27.
