21 The mySChospital website if an important resource, but not the only resource While all hospitals on mySChospital website use the same categories for reporting purposes, they don’t all provide the same types of care. The health care services a hospital provides reflect the needs of its community mySChospital is just one source of information and others are available and should be consulted before drawing conclusions about the care at any one hospital mySChospital is a dynamic information portal; more information will be added in the future

22 mySChospital is part of SCHA’s every Patient Counts statewide initiative to advance patient safety and healthcare quality Everyone recognizes the need for change in America’s healthcare system. South Carolina’s hospitals have chosen a proactive course of change. Together with SCHA, hospitals are working with other partners in business, government, insurance, and the private sector to improve patient safety and healthcare quality in our state. mySChospital is just one of the many initiatives underway by SCHA and its member hospitals to assure the best care is delivered to all patients.

23 The SC Partnership to Advance Patient Safety and Quality Healthcare “Together, we can make health care better and safer for everyone, not because someone else says we have to, but because it is the right thing for each of us to do”
