Outcomes Matter

Dr. Jamie Holland, McLeod Cardiothoracic Surgeon, presents data from quality outcomes data - 2009.

Today we are releasing our 2009 Quality Outcomes for Cardiovascular Surgery.

Outcomes matter.  Outcomes support continual improvement, outcomes encourage innovation and change, and when published and available, outcomes can guide patients, families and physicians with information about treatment and where to seek treatment.

At McLeod Health, ‘Quality’ is one of our four core values.  We define ‘Quality’ as continual improvement.  By comparing the outcomes for our program with the best in the nation we find ways to improve, innovate and change.

Primarily, we are aided in this effort by improvement teams which are physician led, data driven and evidence based.  In addition, we are also aided in this work by our affiliation with the Cleveland Clinic who assisted in the publication of this Outcomes Booklet.  The comparative information is from a national database developed and managed by the Society of Thoracic Surgery.
