Columbia St. Mary’s is the #1 rated hospital in southeastern Wisconsin (and #2 in the state) for high quality and low cost according to HCTrends’ 2015 Health System Quality & Resource Efficiency Study. Click HERE to view the full report.
This report is the first analysis in Wisconsin to measure system-wide
quality and resource efficiency by incorporating both hospital and
medical group measures. Measuring resource efficiency provides a
meaningful comparison of how healthcare is delivered. When combined with
a quality index, it provides a better indication of value.
The HCTrends health system resource efficiency analysis is based on a standard cost-per-episode methodology that measures the relative utilization of medical services provided to treat a specific episode of care. This approach helps to identify the frequency and types of medical services each health system provides to treat a particular episode and how that treatment protocol compares to other health systems.
