What the Healthgrades Ratings Mean

What the Healthgrades Ratings Mean
As America's leading independent healthcare ratings organization, the Healthgrades rating method offers a uniquely objective and comprehensive overview of hospital services. Healthgrades does all the following:

  • evaluates the performance of approximately 4,500 hospitals nationwide on risk-adjusted mortality and complications rates for nearly 30 of the most common conditions treated and procedures.
  • independently measures hospitals based on data that hospitals submit to the federal government. No hospital can opt in or out of the analysis, and no hospital pays to be measured.
  • risk adjusts for patient demographic characteristics and clinical risk factors, thereby taking into account how sick patients are upon admission.
  • bases its analysis solely on objective measures of clinical quality outcomes. Other organizations factor in subjective measures such as reputation or even technologies used at a hospital.
