A Transparent Report Card
to the Community

Texas Health Resources is committed to transparent public reporting of third-party quality and safety data. This report fulfills that promise by making available the many clinical outcome reports linked from this page. We're willing to be transparent and accountable — and willing to make improvements based on the data.

Why Are We Doing This?
Reporting Outcomes Data Is the Right Thing to Do!

It's the right thing to do — a demonstration of accountability to the communities we are privileged to serve.

We're raising the bar for Texas Health, for health care providers throughout our region and across the nation.

Our Commitment

Texas Health is committed to this initiative for three specific reasons:

  1. We like what hospital reporting will do for consumers. As a not-for-profit health care system and a community resource, we believe that consumers should know how we are performing. We want patients and families to have better information about the quality and safety of health care in North Texas. We believe that transparency drives continuous performance improvement through accountability. It's the right thing to do.
  2. We like what open reporting will do for us. We have learned that public reporting will help us better document our care, obtain more valid data and drive performance improvement.
  3. We like what open reporting does for hospital care in general. We hope that our Quality and Safety Report will contribute to a better understanding of how to assess, report and improve hospital quality and safety. We welcome the chance to collaborate on better methods for making hospital quality and safety data public.

Guiding Principles

  • The Quality and Safety Report is based on a variety of indicators and supporting metrics, primarily clinical data. This data will be the most current available and updated regularly.
  • If we offer a medical procedure or treatment, we will try to find a third-party indicator that is appropriate to report in the Quality and Safety Report.
  • All the indicators we use will be owned by an accredited third-party organization. They will not be proprietary to Texas Health Resources and will be transparent.
  • We will include both the positive and negative metrics - we will not censor those we do not like. We do not decide what to make public based on how it makes us look. We will give equal prominence to both favorable and non-favorable results.

Although there are many other hospital performance reports available, and we encourage people to look at a variety of information sources, Texas Health strongly believes in the use of nationally endorsed consensus indicators as the core of quality and patient safety reporting. These indicators have been developed by national specialty organizations based on the best current medical evidence, have gone through a rigorous consensus process, and have transparent and easily understandable indicator specifications.
