Accountability to Our Patients

How We Measure Up: The Balanced Scorecard

Being accountable to our patients and community is essential to earning your trust and building a reputation for excellence. Accountability means making the right clinical and managerial decisions, managing resources efficiently, and measuring our performance against state and national benchmarks. These goals are achieved with the help of our Balanced Scorecard.

Care of the Community

Total Community Benefit

Part of Asante’s mission is to provide quality healthcare to any person who lives in Southern Oregon or Northern California who needs medical care whether or not they can pay. As a not-for-profit health system, Asante must give the Total Community Benefit dollar amount on its tax form. The higher the number is the more Asante has given help to those in need.

Care of the Patient

Patient Experience (HCAHPS)

Asante cares about how its patients feel their visit went. To measure this, Asante uses a survey called the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS).  The higher the number, the happier patients were with their visit. If Asante meets its target, it has scored better than 80% of other health systems in America.

Office Visit Satisfaction (APP)

Asante Physician Partners (APP) offices want every patient to have a great visit. To measure this, APP mails a survey to patients to fill out and return. The higher the number, the happier the patient was with their visit. If APP meets the target, then it will have scored better than 55% of other doctor’s offices.

Outpatient ED Experience

Asante cares about how its patients feel their visit went. To measure this, Asante uses a third-party survey.  The higher the number, the happier patients were with their visit. If Asante meets its target, it has scored better than 78% of other health systems in America.

30 Day Readmissions–Unplanned All Cause

When a patient leaves an Asante hospital, Asante wants the patient to stay healthy. To measure how Asante is doing, they check to see if a patient returns to the hospital as an inpatient within 30 days. A lower number means fewer patients are coming back to the hospital.

Patient Safety

Asante wants every patient visit to be safe while in their hospitals. To measure this, Asante keeps track of a number of problems that could happen to a patient; some examples are falling out of bed or a surgical site infection. The lower the number, the better. If the target is met then Asante has performed above average when compared to other hospitals in America.  

Provider Relations

Overall Provider Satisfaction

Part of Asante’s vision is to be a great place to work. To measure how its providers feel about their job, Asante gives a survey once a year. The higher the score, the more satisfied employees are with their job.  If the target is met Asante has performed better than 80% of other health systems in America.

 

Employee Engagement

Employee Engagement

The higher the score, the more satisfied employees are with their job.  If the target is met Asante has performed better than 80% of other health systems in America.

Financial Accountability

Operating Income Margin

There are many ways to measure a company’s financial strength. Asante looks at the operating income margin because it measures the company’s overall finances. The higher the number, the better Asante is performing financially. If the target is met it will help Asante keep its A+ credit rating standard. A company’s credit rating is similar to a person’s FICA credit score.
