Unlike other hospital quality analyses, Healthgrades evaluates hospital quality for conditions and procedures based solely on clinical outcomes. We measure hospital performance for the most common in-hospital procedures and conditions and adjust for each patient’s risk factors, such as age, gender and medical condition.

Our analysis is based on more than 45 million Medicare medical claims records for the most recent three-year time period available from nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide.
