Thomson Reuters IDs 15 Top Health Systems

John Commins, for HealthLeaders Media , January 18, 2012

Thomson Reuters on Tuesday named its "15 Top Health Systems" in the nation based on clinical performance.

The fourth annual study reviewed clinical outcomes at more than 300 health systems across the country and picked the top 15 based on a composite score of eight measures of quality, patient perception of care, and efficiency.

"This year we are seeing stronger system-wide performance and increased rates of improvement, particularly among the 15 Top Health Systems award winners," Jean Chenoweth, senior vice president for performance improvement and 100 Top Hospitals program at Thomson Reuters, said in a statement.

"Health system performance is beginning to reflect aspirations to provide more consistent outcomes across communities served. Healthcare reform appears to have stimulated the increased rate of improvement at the system level."

The study divides the 15 top health systems into large, medium, and small groups based on total operating expenses. The winners are as follows:

Were these results risk-adjusted? I know Prime in CA is from a camp that avoids certain patient types based on reimbursement, so I have to ask.
