100 Top Hospitals Performance Insights

For 24 years, the Watson Health™ 100 Top Hospitals® program has collaborated with top academics to uncover the impact organizational leadership has on the performance and best practices within the nation's top healthcare organizations. The quantitative study is the only of its kind that uses a national balanced scorecard and incorporates independent public data, proprietary, risk-adjusted and peer-reviewed methodology, and key performance metrics to arrive at an objective, independent analysis of a hospitals performance. The methodology creates an integrated program that identifies long-term rates of improvement in combination with existing achievements. 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.
