If you work in healthcare, you probably know that U.S. News & World Report recently announced its Best Hospitals list for 2018–’19. The company evaluates more than 5,000 hospitals and awards winners in a variety of categories and specialties.
While some debate the list’s merit, hospital leaders and healthcare consumers surely pay attention to the rankings. And they should. The list is part of a bigger picture. It rewards hospitals that achieve lower costs and better patient outcomes.
For our part, we were thrilled that hospitals using innovative patient engagement solutions are being honored among this year’s “Best Hospitals.”
