In the summer of 2013, international healthcare thought-leader,
Siemens Healthcare, came all the way to HOI from Germany. They were joined by a camera crew,
and Dr. Jens Deerberg-Wittram, the president of The International Consortium
for Health Outcomes Measurement (ICHOM), a non-profit organization designed
to advance outcomes measurement on a global basis.
Siemens Healthcare was doing a series of features on outcomes measurement,
the practice of analyzing relevant data in a highly systematic way in
order to facilitate better health care for patients. They were looking
to feature a healthcare provider that epitomized the effectiveness of
measuring health outcomes and implementing the resulting findings in clinical practice.
Hoag Orthopedic Institute was chosen because of our superior clinical outcomes,
our high patient satisfaction scores and our exceptional physician leadership.
Siemens captured HOI at a glance in this video. Watch it to learn more
about why we have been so successful in such a short period of time:
Both, the experience with HOI in Irvine, Calif., and the ICHOM in Boston,
were consolidated into an insightful article written by acclaimed author,
Peter Jaret. You can read the article, which was featured in the July
issue of Medical Solutions (Siemens Healthcare’s magazine)
