Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospital Winners

This week we released our annual study identifying the 100 top U.S. hospitals based on their overall organizational performance.

The Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospitals study evaluates performance in 10 areas: mortality; medical complications; patient safety; average patient stay; expenses; profitability; patient satisfaction; adherence to clinical standards of care; post-discharge mortality; and readmission rates for acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), heart failure, and pneumonia. The study has been conducted annually since 1993.

Health System Member Hospitals May Provide Better Care

The latest 100 Top Hospitals® research reveals that hospitals that are members of a health system are more likely than non-system hospitals to win a 100 Top Hospitals award. And despite previous industry research that linked health systems with higher costs, they found that system hospitals spend less on pharmacy costs.

Overview:

The goal of this research was to evaluate how variability on pharmacy and supply intensity (spending) correlates with hospital system membership and with variability on hospital performance. They found that:

  •  Hospitals that belong to a system spend less on pharmacy.
  •  Top-performing hospitals are more likely to belong to a hospital system.
  •  Higher performing hospitals (the Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospitals® award winners) have lower pharmacy and supply costs.
  •  Hospitals that spend less on pharmacy and supplies have better performance on some other measures of quality

Top 10 U.S. Health Systems

Today we released our third annual study identifying the 10 top 10 U.S. health systems based on quality of care, efficiency, and patient satisfaction. They are:

• Advocate Health Care*  ― Oak Brook, IL
• Cape Cod Healthcare ― Hyannis, MA
• CareGroup Healthcare System ― Boston, MA
• Kettering Health Network* ― Dayton, OH
• Maury Regional Healthcare System ― Columbia, TN
• Mayo Foundation**  ― Rochester, MN
• NorthShore University HealthSystem ― Evanston, IL
• OhioHealth* ― Columbus, OH
• Partners Healthcare ― Boston, MA
• Spectrum Health** ― Grand Rapids, MI

*Denotes three-time winner
**Denotes two-time winner

Compared with their peers, the Thomson Reuters 10 Top Health Systems saved more lives, caused fewer medical complications, made fewer medical errors, followed recommended standards of care more closely, released patients half a day sooner on average, and scored better on patient satisfaction surveys.

The Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospitals program has analyzed and reported on the performance of hospitals since 1993. For more information, visitwww.100tophospitals.com.

Making the Connection: 100 Top Hospitals and Social Media

Since 1993, the Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospitals program has honored 100 U.S. hospitals each year for their success based on publicly-available, objective data. Eighteen years after the first crop of winners was announced, the 100 Top Hospitals program did something it never had before: it joined the world of social media.

Via Facebook and Twitter, 100 Top Hospitals was able to communicate with the winning hospitals on a personal level and through a medium where many of them already had an active presence. In just one week, 100 Top Hospitals interacted with over 5,000 Facebook users and gained 42 followers on Twitter.
