The 2020 awards were based on data from CMS, from Oct. 2015 to Sept. 2018; HCAHPS patient satisfaction survey scores may or may not be included in the scoring). In addition, five health systems were selected for excellence. CareChex is a division of Quantros, a for-profit software solutions company.
