SOMC Earns National Honor For Medical Records

Southern Ohio Medical Center has earned the Five-Star Award from Professional Resource Consultants, Inc. (PRC) for scoring in the top 10 percent among hospitals for the local medical staff’s perception of SOMC’s medical records and information processes.

SOMC contracts with PRC to survey local physicians each year on their perceptions about the hospitals departments and services. These survey scores are then compared with a national database of more than 300 other hospitals to provide comparisons with some of the best hospitals in the country.

SOMC’s score on medical records and information was above the 90th percentile in the database. An award will be presented to SOMC during PRC’s client education conference in June.
