CareChex is an innovative medical quality rating system designed to assist hospitals and health systems in improving the quality of inpatient care and promoting medical excellence to consumers, payers, and employers.

Unlike other publicly available quality ratings, CareChex provides a composite evaluation of all components of medical quality including process of care, outcomes of care, and patient experiences.

Everyone on the network team has a hand in making these ranking a reality. These medical excellence ranking are an overall measure of quality for the hospital or health system and encompasses performance across risk-adjusted mortality rates, risk adjusted complication rates, AHRQ inpatient quality indicators (IQIs), AHRQ patient safety indicators (PSIs), core measures, and HCAHPS patient satisfaction scores.

Congratulations on a job well done!

“We are extremely grateful for your ability to care for patients in such an exceptional manner,” says Teri Sholder, Chief Quality Officer to the caregivers of Kettering Health Network. “Providing excellent care is only possible with a team of outstanding physicians, employees, and volunteers.”
