In recognition of the nation’s best and brightest, The Leapfrog Group recently announced the recipients of its elite 2019 Top Hospitals awards and Watson Health (formerly Truven) unveiled its list of the Top Cardiovascular Hospitals for 2020. Among those recognized on both lists were more than 50 LUMEDX client partners.
For a hospital to make the annual list of top performers, The Leapfrog Group—a national nonprofit watchdog organization—measures patient safety, clinical quality, efficiency, and management structures to prevent errors. The recognition this year went to 120 facilities: 10 children’s hospitals, 37 general acute-care hospitals, 55 teaching hospitals, and 18 rural hospitals. Of those, 36 are LUMEDX clients.
The Watson Health 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals study, formerly the Truven Health Analytics 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals study, uses a balanced national scorecard of hospital performance metrics and has been conducted since 1998. Fifteen facilities on the LUMEDX client roster were named on this list.
