HCIA is inviting winners of its 100 Top Hospitals award to participate in clinical studies at no cost.
Helping to organize the Clinical Benchmarks for Success database are a number of multiyear winners of the top 100 award.
They are Boston's Brigham and Women's Hospital and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center; Cleveland Clinic; Evanston (Ill.) Northwestern Health System; Harris Methodist Fort Worth (Texas); Blodgett Memorial Medical Center, Grand Rapids, Mich.; St. Joseph Medical Center in Tacoma, Wash.; and UCSF Stanford Health Care in San Francisco.
HCIA, a Baltimore-based healthcare information company, claims Clinical Benchmarks is the first national research database stratified by size and type of hospital and established solely on the basis of managerial and clinical performance. The Top 100 Hospitals study is sponsored by HCIA and William M. Mercer, a New York-based human resources consulting firm.
