Top Rural & Community Hospitals Outperform Peers in Quality and Outcomes but Improvement Needed in Patient Perspective

May 9, 2018

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: Top Rural & Community Hospitals Outperform Peers in Quality and Outcomes but Improvement Needed in Patient Perspective (Graphic: Business Wire) The Top 20 Rural & Community Hospitals are determined by the results of the Hospital Strength INDEX® from iVantage Health Analytics. Now in its eighth year, the INDEX examines rural providers across 50 rural-relevant indicators and is the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural provider performance. Analysis of rural provider performance conducted by The Chartis Center for Rural Health reveals that Top 20 Rural & Community Hospitals demonstrate strong performance in areas such as Market Share (Inpatient and Outpatient), Quality and Outcomes. These hospitals, however, are underperforming peers in Patient Perspective (Figure 1). “In each of the last two years, we’ve seen this group of top performers outpace their peers in several categories such as Quality and Outcomes, yet underperform in Patient Perspective,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader of The Chartis Center for Rural Health. “This data suggests an opportunity – for all rural and community hospitals – to focus improvement efforts on HCAHPS, and specific indicators such as doctor communication, medication administration and discharge instructions. While the INDEX serves as the foundation for recognizing top performance across rural healthcare , the true importance of the analysis lies in helping hospital leadership teams identify opportunities for creating lasting, meaningful improvement.” Resources Recognized Hospitals: A complete list of this year’s Top 20 Rural & Community Hospitals can be found at .
