Wentworth-Douglass Hospital and Health Partners of NH (the Hospital's PHO) were recently named to the 2010 Harvard Pilgrim Hospital Honor Roll. The Hospital Honor Roll names those hospitals whose performance was among the top 25 percent of those measured nationally on a set of composite quality metrics. The physician group (PHO) receive the award for commitment to high quality care based on performance against national HEDIS quality benchmarks. This is the first year the PHO has received this award.
The hospitals are measured nationally on a set of composite quality, efficiency and patient experience measures. These measures are reported by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and by Leapfrog, a group that compares hospitals on how well they comply with recommended standards for protecting patients.
