Performance Excellence Process
Horizon Health Network is a critical
partner in the development and execution of the government's
recently established Performance Excellence Process.
The implementation of formal process improvement
methodologies will increase efficiencies, provide cost
savings and increase the public's satisfaction with
services. This results-oriented, long-term
business approach and our role in its implementation are discussed
in this report.
Health-care Associated Infections
We are committed to providing safe, quality patient care.
Horizon Health Network has a comprehensive Infection Control Program which monitors infection rates on an ongoing basis. This information is used by our health professionals and planners to identify areas for improvement in order to reduce the incidence of infections in our organization.
Horizon supports the Department of Health's monthly reporting requirement for Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) and Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) bacteremia.
We believe that public reporting improves transparency and accountability, and supports our ongoing quality improvement initiatives to enhance patient safety.
