Revisions on how hospitals are color-coded for the optimal care scores have been updated as of January 2014. These new standards apply uniformly across all four of the optimal care bundles (AMI, HF, PN, and SCIP). In addition, the standards are slightly higher than prior years. Hospital leaders throughout the state urged these streamlined, higher standards. Hospitals have improved on these measures over the past few years, and hospital leaders felt it was time to "raise the bar." The new, tougher standards reflect the commitment of hospitals to provide high-quality care to each and every patient. Going forward, the following system will be used:
