Challenges
Kettering Medical Center (KMC), a HealthGrades client since August 2002,
uses HealthGrades as a key component of their Total Joint Center Model of
Excellence (see diagram for Model details). HealthGrades Quality Ratings
Analysis plays a significant role in allowing the hospital to benchmark, assess
and enhance their clinical performance. The HealthGrades star ratings are
included in all advertising material and have driven new patients to the hospital.
KMC is realizing excellent results by focusing on quality, marketing, patient
satisfaction and financial performance.
As with many hospitals, Kettering faces operational, budgetary and competitive
challenges. By utilizing both the quality analysis and promotional HealthGrades'
resources, as well information from Premier Inc., Aspen Healthcare Metrics,
Solucient, and US News and World Report, Kettering continues to advance their
commitment to being a Total Joint Center of Excellence.
HealthGrades plays a key role in helping the hospital run a profitable total joint
program and achieve budgetary goals.
