The rate of improvement metrics provides guidance as to how leadership can transform organizational performance over time. This standardized approach, coupled with objective insights into the effectiveness of hospital leadership, helps the 100 Top Hospitals program provide unique value as a standard for measuring quality of care in the United States.
