Orange County California’s Hoag Orthopedic Institute (HOI), just released its 2017 Outcomes Report. In it, readers can find information regarding HOI’s previous year’s surgical volumes, care quality metrics, infection and readmission rates, and patient satisfaction scores.
HOI has performed the most joint replacements in California for five consecutive years. It has also had the lowest readmission rate in the nation for hip and knee replacements from 2012 through 2015.
In addition to the data on infection rates and volume, the report also highlights quality improvement initiatives, distinctions and innovations, details on HOI’s education and research program, compelling patient testimonials, and much more.
“Our quest to provide greater value and optimize outcomes in musculoskeletal care unfolds in this issue of our annual outcomes report,” said Sopida Andronaco, R.N., director of Performance Improvement and Clinical Outcomes for HOI. “The entire HOI staff works tirelessly to continually reach this exemplary level of excellence and we are proud to showcase their dedication and commitment to delivering quality care to our patients.”
