October 4, 2012
William Balfour

healthcare data analyticsThe top performing Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) were announced on Friday, September 28 by the National Rural Health Association. The 59 highest ranked CAHs were chosen based on their performance on the iVantage Hospital Strength Index.

CAHs were ranked by their success in one of three areas of performance:

  • Quality index:TM A rating of hospital performance based on the percentile rank across the five categories of Hospital Compare process of care measures.
  • Patient perspective index:TM A rating of hospital performance based on the percentile rank on two Hospital Compare HCAHPS measures (“overall rating” and “highly recommend”).
  • Financial stability index:TM A rating of hospital performance based on the percentile rank on a set of balance sheet and income statement financial ratios.

Congratulations to one & all!
