The Joint Commission recognized 405 hospitals and critical-access facilities as top performers based on nearly two dozen measures related to cardiac, pneumonia, surgical and pediatric asthma care. The top-performers list (PDF), which reflects 14% of Joint Commission-accredited hospitals and critical-access facilities that report core measurement performance data, was a first for the organization and was released with the commission’s annual report on quality and safety. Top-performing hospitals scored 95% for every individual care measure, according to the report.
