VACIHCS - 4 Stars!
The Strategic Analytics for Improvement and Learning Value Model (SAIL) is a quarterly report that measures 10 categories that are then used to rank all 130 VA Medical Centers (VAMC) and establish a “star rating.” The star rating system assigns from 1-5 stars, with 4 and 5 stars representing the top performing VAMCs across the nation. The most recent SAIL report was released this week and I’m happy to announce that VA Central Iowa Health Care System (VACIHCS) has been named a 4-Star VAMC in overall Quality. Below you will see several categories where we have been recognized as top performers:
- Patient Experience, ranked #3 (out of 130)
- Care Transitions, ranked #5 (out of 130)
- Access, ranked #17 (out of 130)
- Employee Satisfaction, ranked #23 (out of 130)
The improvements represented above are due to the dedication, attention to detail and hard work of every single VACIHCS employee. Please take a moment to congratulate each other. Thank You for your continued efforts to “Honor America’s Veterans by providing exceptional health care that improves their health and well-being.”
