Merative (formerly Watson Health) lists names of top 100 hospitals for 2022. The ratings used categories according to size and teaching status using Medicare data primarily from 2019 and 2020, other publicly reported (at HospitalCompare) patient satisfaction scores (HCAHPS) and results such as mortality rates, readmissions, ER times and spending. While no data are shown for individual hospital performance, Watson Health makes a case that as a group these hospitals outperform their peers in quality and efficiency (lower expenses). Free report shows winners’ names only; some winners received the Everest Award for also improving at the fastest rate over a five-year period. Methodology examines survival, complications and readmissions, patient experience; efficiency and profitability from 2,650 eligible hospitals. Published July 2022 by Merative, the new name for the former IBM Watson Health. Watson Health was formerly Truven Health Analytics.
