CareSouth Carolina reaches historic compliance goals
CareSouth Carolina saw breakthrough in patient compliance during 2022, reaching historical measures on its Quality Corporate Scorecoard. In total, CareSouth Carolina met 21 out of 26 (81%) quality goals set forth for the organization in patient compliance during 2022. These internal goals are used to measure an array of quality metrics, and this was the highest percentage CareSouth Carolina has seen in patient compliance.

Nearly one-third of CareSouth Carolina’s patients have Hypertension. For 2022, the organization posted an impressive 63% control rate, which is the highest CSC has seen.
Hypertension is known as the “silent killer” because most people who have hypertension, or high blood pressure, do not have any symptoms. The CDC shares that when your blood pressure is high: You are four times more likely to die from a stroke. You are three times more likely to die from heart disease. This is why keeping the condition under control is crucial.
In addition, Breast cancer screenings saw an all-time high at 51% and 70% of CareSouth Carolina’s diabetic patients received an eye exam, which was also a record for the organization. The American Cancer Society shares that Breast cancer is sometimes found after symptoms appear, but many women with breast cancer have no symptoms. This is why regular breast cancer screening is so important.
