A Mod­ern Health­care anal­y­sis of two of Medi­care’s qual­ity-im­prove­ment pro­grams found that scor­ing well in prevent­ing read­mis­sions doesn’t mean a hospi­tal will do well in im­prov­ing care pro­cesses. The find­ings didn’t sur­prise one hospi­tal CEO. “They’re two dif­fer­ent pro­grams fo­cus­ing on dif­fer­ent things. They’re go­ing to have dif­fer­ent re­sults,” says Michael Motte, right, of St. Alex­ius Hospi­tal, St. Louis.
