PinnacleHealth does well in Highmark program

By , - Last modified: August 17, 2012 at 9:09 AM

Harrisburg-based PinnacleHealth System received the maximum reward possible through Pittsburgh-based insurer Highmark Inc.'s Quality Blue pay-for-performance hospital program this year.

PinnacleHealth has had benchmark results in central line bloodstream infections, no ventilator-associated infections in adult critical care units for two years and a 6 percent decrease in readmissions of patients discharged to skilled nursing facilities.

Highmark's program is a decade old and includes 90 hospitals in Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Highmark will hold a best practice forum in Harrisburg on Nov. 8 for the hospitals.
