Pneumonia care quality

Pneumonia is a serious lung infection that causes difficulty breathing, fever, cough and fatigue. These quality measures show some of the recommended treatments for pneumonia.

The Appropriate Care Measure (ACM)

 is a patient-centered composite score that captures whether or not a patient received all of the recommended treatments they were eligible to receive, based on the specific condition.

A quality measure is medical information from patient records coverted into a rate or percentage that shows how well hospitals care for their patients. You can use this quality information to help you compare hospitals.
