Clinical Process of Care



Clinical Process of Care measures are a set of evidence based, scientifically-researched standards of care used nation-wide for accreditation purposes. These indicators compare the quality of care that hospitals give. Hospitals are measured on how often they provide recommended treatments known to get the best results for patients with certain medical conditions or surgical procedures.
