Clinical Consulting Reduces CABG Mortality At Miami Valley Hospital

Located in Dayton, Ohio, Miami Valley Hospital is a large urban hospital with over 1,100 physicians practicing in 50 primary and specialty areas, and the busiest emergency and trauma center in the state. Premier Health Partners, the hospital’s parent organization, partnered with Healthgrades to determine the cause of high-than-desired mortality/complication rates and variation in cardiac surgery outcomes across the five-hospital system.

The physician-led clinical consulting team at Healthgrades performed a comprehensive root-cause analysis to identify what was driving mortality and complication rates, and implemented a clinical improvement process based on their findings.

Learn how partnering with Healthgrades helped Miami Valley Hospital realize and sustain significant reductions in PCI and CABG mortality rates within two years.
