100 Top Hospitals
The Watson Health™ 100 Top Hospitals® program recognizes 100 healthcare organizations from across the country that achieve the highest national scores based on 14 separate measures of hospital organizational performance including patient care, operational efficiency, and financial stability. The measures are equally weighted and hospitals are only compared against similar facilities in terms of size and teaching status. The results of the annual studies are released exclusively to Modern Healthcare.
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.
