THE HEART HOSPITAL Baylor Plano 

How to Interpret the Data

Percentages listed in each column tell you how often a care process was put into practice during the indicated time period. For example, the AMI table may list the AMI Core Measure, "Discharge," along with the following percentages: 98% for THE HEART HOSPITAL Baylor Plano, 99% for National and 99% for the State of Texas. This means that aspirin was prescribed during discharge for AMI patients 98% of the time at this hospital, 99% of the time in hospitals nationwide, 99% of the time in Texas hospitals.

Unless otherwise noted, these tables represent data as measured from April 1, 2012 through March31, 2013. The definitions provided below each measure category title were retrieved from http://www.hospitalcompare.hhs.gov/. Please see the bottom of this page for an explanation of any footnotes used.

Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) Core Measures

An acute myocardial infarction (AMI), also called a heart attack, happens when one of the heart’s arteries becomes blocked and the supply of blood and oxygen to part of the heart muscle is slowed or stopped. When the heart muscle doesn’t get the oxygen and nutrients it needs, the affected heart tissue may die. These measures show some of the standards of care provided, if appropriate, for most adults who have had a heart attack.
