Abstract
Background: As of 2013-2014, hospitals are reimbursed based on hospital?s VBP scores. The VBP score is based 70% on clinical processes and outcomes and 30% on patient reports of care. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine if magnet (N=160), magnet-in-progress (N=99), and non-magnet hospitals (N=1742) have significant differences in the occurrence of 30-day mortality and readmission rates (for MIs, CHF, and pneumonia); and the percent of patients that assign hospitals the highest ranked rating on questions related to patient satisfaction with care. Methodology: This study utilized a secondary data analysis methodology. Measures /Outcomes: Outcome measures included 30-day mortality and readmission rates (for MIs, CHF, and pneumonia); and patient satisfaction rates on the HCAHPS Survey. Conclusion: Analysis revealed that 30 day mortality rates for MIs were found to be significantly lower (p<0.001) in magnet hospitals (14.87) than in non-Magnet hospitals (15.43). Magnet and Magnet-in-progress hospitals were found to have significantly (p<0.007) higher scores than non-magnet hospitals on six of the seven subjective outcome variables investigated regarding patient reported satisfaction with care. The implication of these results for nursing practice, policy, and future research are discussed.
