America’s Best Hospitals Have These Positive Qualities In Common

In the healthcare industry, a good hospital is important. It represents the efforts that professionals make in this industry in order to effectively reach patients and give the best care possible.

Every year, Healthgrades create a list of hospitals that have proven to be the best in America. Out of all 50 states, hospitals are ranked and judged based on performance, following a unique set of guidelines.

“What are the measurements that demonstrate this exceptional quality? Simply put, patients treated at America’s Best Hospitals have a lower risk of dying and are less likely to experience in-hospital complications than if they were treated at non-recipient hospitals.” Healthgrades reports.

Transforming Organizations Stand Out

All in all, the organizations that have been most likely to transform their structures receive a higher rating than those who have not. Of course, patients who are put in the center of the hospital also stand a better chance at receiving a high rating on the list. A model in which “quality and safety” are top priorities for hospitals is a model that will strive to the top of the list.

So, what exactly does this list mean? According to HealthGrades, the hospitals listed as top 50 include hospitals that “are in the top 1% of hospitals in the nation for providing overall clinical excellence across a broad spectrum of conditions and procedures consistently for at least six consecutive years.”

The top 100 hospitals listed by Healthgrades are the hospitals who have scored a spot on the list for at least 3 consecutive years.

“America’s Best Hospitals is Healthgrades highest distinction. These hospitals exhibit exceptional, comprehensive, and consistent quality year over year. Simply put, patients are more likely to have a successful treatment without major complications—and have a lower chance of dying—at America’s Best Hospitals.” HealthGrades reports.

The top four characteristics that each hospital has to possess is patient-centered care, evidence-based decision making, collaboration, consumer and patient engagement.

But that is not all, c-suite representation also plays a role in the quality and strategies of the hospital because they determine the data that is provided throughout the hospital and play a core role in the structure of the hospital. With a weak c-suite, the hospital is met with issues, and most likely a low rating on the Healthgrades report.

Having the ability to make evidence-based decisions plays a huge role in hospital’s placement. Healthgrades uses an example of Delray Medical Center as a hospital who has implemented important initiatives like electronic order sets, and daily huddles that determine the clinical care. This also goes hand in hand with the hospital’s ability to collaborate with all payers in the structure.

“America’s Best Hospitals emphasize the importance of collaboration. Creating an environment of accountability with highly-engaged physicians, nurses, board members, and patients and their families will drive impactful cultural change both inside and outside the organization.” Healthgrades reports.

Collaboration creates active roles in patients journeys. It means that all members of the organization are on board with making sure that patients receive the best quality of care, which is the ultimate goal after all.
