High and Low Bond Ratings

HealthLeaders magazine, June 13, 2015

Healthcare organizations with strong bond ratings are regarded favorably from a financial perspective, of course. In addition, research by the Truven Health Analytics™ ActionOI® program shows that such organizations tend to excel in other categories, such as average length of stay and results of Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) surveys.

Hospital Performance

HealthLeaders magazine, May 13, 2015

The annual Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals® identifies U.S. hospitals with the best overall performance across multiple organizational metrics, including clinical, operational, and financial. The ability of some hospitals to adapt as the industry is changing demonstrates leadership as the winners set the standards their peers seek to achieve. Study projections indicate that if the new national benchmarks of high performance were achieved by all hospitals in the United States, nearly 126,500 additional lives could be saved, almost 109,000 additional patients could be complication-free, and $1.8 billion in inpatient costs could be saved.

But factors such as Medicaid utilization rates and poor reimbursement rates do appear to impact the least profitable hospitals. One controllable factor that appears to be significant is labor productivity, with the most profitable hospitals posting the lowest labor expense per patient.
