    Independent Third-Party Quality Reports
    Sutter Solano Medical Center

    There are so many quality measures out there. What’s really important and where can I find out more information about a hospital’s quality scores?

    Federal and state agencies, as well as other trusted organizations, have chosen to track “quality indicators”—measurements of high-quality medical care for certain common or most costly conditions. These sources gauge whether hospitals like ours give important, recommended medical treatments to achieve the best results for patients. Here we highlight a few respected independent sites that use nationally accepted data-collection and measurement standards.
