Truven Health Analytics names '15 Top Health Systems in US' for 2016

Truven Health Analytics, a leading healthcare data and analytics solutions service, has released the results of the eight annual "Truven Health 15 Top Health Systems" study.

The study identifies the top health systems in the U.S. in 2016 based on balanced, systemwide clinical and administrative performance. According to Truven Health Analytics, which was recently acquired by IBM, winning health systems achieved higher survival rates and fewer errors at a lower overall treatment cost than non-winning systems. Specifically, overall mortality rates among winning systems were 14.7 percent lower for winning health systems compared with non-winning peer group hospitals; complication rates were 15.1 percent lower; and ED wait times were 12.3 percent lower.
