IN­DI­ANAPO­LIS—

Clar­ian Health an­nounced plans to re-chris­ten it­self In­di­ana Uni­ver­sity Health in the first half of 2011. Clar­ian, which has grown sig­nif­i­cantly in re­cent years, owns 10 hos­pi­tals in In­di­ana, in­clud­ing the 1,385-bed clus­ter of fa­cil­i­ties on and near the In­di­anapo­lis cam­pus of In­di­ana Uni­ver­sity: Methodist Hos­pi­tal, Ri­ley cor­po­rate struc­ture will be the same, and Dan Evans will re­main pres­i­dent and CEO, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease. “We want our pa­tients to feel as­sured that when they choose us for their health­care, they are mak­ing the right de­ci­sion, and that when they come to In­di­ana Uni­ver­sity Health any­where in the state they are as­sured of ac­cess to lead­ing-edge treat­ments and re­search, and world-class clin­i­cal spe­cial­ists,” Evans said in the re­lease.

MADI­SON, Wis.—

One of the coun­try’s most ex­pan­sive state-based qual­i­tyre­port­ing sys­tems is adding sev­eral more mea­sures that show how Wis­con­sin hos­pi­tals rate on their birthing ser­vices. The Wis­con­sin Hos­pi­tal As­so­ci­a­tion’s Check­Point web­site in­cludes in­for­ma­tion on more than 90 qual­ity mea­sures from hos­pi­tals across the state, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease. The 6-year-old site saw one of its largest sin­gle re­leases of new in­for­ma­tion re­cently, as birthing in­for­ma­tion from nearly 60 hos­pi­tals was added to the data­base. Par­ents-to-be can search the site to find out about a hos­pi­tal’s birthing ser­vices and each fa­cil­ity’s per­for­mance on seven qual­ity in­di­ca­tors re­lated to the birthing process. The data are bro­ken into two cat­e­gories: clin­i­cal and safety, which re­lates to how ser­vices are ren­dered dur­ing the de­liv­ery process, and ed­u­ca­tion and sup­port, re­lat­ing to in­for­ma­tion given to new fam­i­lies im­me­di­ately af­ter the birth and even af­ter pa­tients leave the hos­pi­tal.
