Hospitals join QUEST program
NORTH MISSISSIPPI — More than 30 hospitals have joined the expansion of Premier’s QUEST: High Performing Hospitals collaborative. Approximately 200 hospitals representing 31 states are now participating in this project, which is currently linking the two main goals of health reform proposals being considered by Congress — quality improvement and cost reduction.
Developed in partnership with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, QUEST is designed to springboard hospitals to new levels of performance and inform public policies with tangible results. To accomplish this, QUEST benchmarked participating facilities using data from Premier’s clinical database to determine the “baseline” level of performance in cost, mortality and evidence-based care delivery.
Hospitals joining the expansion of QUEST include Baptist Memorial Health Care of Memphis, which added two hospitals for a total of seven, and North Mississippi Health Services of Tupelo, which added five hospitals for a total of six.
