Aspirus has been named one of the nation’s 15 Top Health Systems by IBM Watson HealthTM.
The award “spotlights the best-performing health systems in the U.S.”, according to a news release from Aspirus, and is based on a balanced scorecard of publicly available clinical, operational, and patient satisfaction metrics and data.
This year’s 15 Top Health Systems study evaluated 337 health systems and 2,961 member hospitals to identify the 15 U.S. health systems with the highest overall achievement on a balanced scorecard. The scorecard is based on the 100 Top Hospitals, with a focus on inpatient outcomes, the process of care, extended outcomes, efficiency, and patient experience.
Aspirus was also recognized in 2018 with the honor.
“We have worked incredibly hard as a team to constantly improve the quality and experience of care we provide, so this recognition means the world to our team,” said Matthew F. Heywood, president and CEO for Aspirus.
