U.S. Hospitals' Quality and Efficiency Profiles Over the Past Five Years


Although data on hospital quality and efficiency are now available, most of the information consists of a limited number of care measures taken at one point in time. The next challenge is to identify hospitals that demonstrate high performance consistently over time for a broad spectrum of measures—those that can "guarantee" high quality to all patients and high efficiency to payors. This project will explore the dynamics of hospital performance and the factors that contribute to its sustainability. In addition, the investigators will assess the factors and interventions that have enabled four hospitals to attain a high level of performance.
