Congestive heart failure quality indicators
How do we compare?
At Community Health Network, we take pride in the care we provide to our patients. To monitor the quality of that care, we track specific quality measures and compare them to benchmark measures. We publish this information so that you can see how effective Community Health Network is regarding the treatment of congestive heart failure.
What is heart failure?
Heart failure, also called congestive heart failure, is a condition in which the heart cannot pump enough oxygenated blood to meet the needs of the body's other organs. The heart keeps pumping, but not as efficiently as a healthy heart. Usually, the loss in the heart's pumping action is a symptom of an underlying heart problem.
These quality measures show some of the standards of care provided, if appropriate, to someone who has had congestive heart failure.
