Quality of Care

A quality measure is a formula that converts medical information from patient records into a rate or percentage that shows how well a hospital cares for its patients. Many of the indicators we use at Highland Hospital incorporate existing quality measures that have been established and accepted by national or professional organizations and government agencies.
