At Aurora, we believe that the pursuit of excellence is not enough - we also hold ourselves accountable for results.
Measurable quality is the foundation of everything that we do. Three factors contribute to quality and create value: Clinical excellence, affordability and an outstanding experience. We are constantly measuring ourselves against national benchmarks in all three of these areas and our results are excellent.
We were the top performing health care system in America in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Hospital Quality Incentive Demonstration Project. Aurora received 253 awards, more than any other U.S. health care system during the 6-year demonstration project.
We know that better care can lower costs. Studies have shown that we're the most cost efficient health care system in the Milwaukee and Green Bay areas. In 10 years, our Care Management program has saved over $220 million. Efficiencies and shorter hospital stays have saved another $20 million. Four-year results from the Hospital Quality Incentive Demonstration Project are also revealing. Among the 250 participants nationwide, fewer complications, lower mortality and shorter stays have saved $1 billion. As a top performer in the country, we've contributed significantly to these results.
