Consumers Deserve a Reliable Source for Assessing and Comparing Hospital Quality and Safety. "Yet most publicly available ranking systems produce inconsistent, contradictory, and confusing results..."

To help you in your search for the best hospitals based on your specific needs, the CareChex® Quality Rating System uniquely integrates all measures of process of care, outcomes of care and patient experience across 4,500 general acute care, non-federal U.S. hospitals and all physicians with inpatient charges. CareChex® uses a patent pending scoring system which integrates the most reliable quality indicators available in the industry into a single, multi-dimensional, composite score and rating. The system measures and ranks all dimensions of quality across 38 clinical categories, calculates all-site readmission rates, and incorporates clinical and risk adjustment measures.

This innovative annual rating and benchmarking system is the most statistically accurate system available in the industry, and is used by consumers, providers, and purchasers to evaluate, measure and compare the quality and safety of inpatient hospital care in the U.S.
