Criteria: How to be awarded as one of the World’s Best Hospitals 2021
Main questions following every kind of global ranking out there, especially in a sector that significant like the medical one: Which where the criteria for the rankings? Is the ranking trustworthy and accurate?
How has the ranking been executed?
A score was given for each hospital in every country. Three components built this score and decided the final result:
The first were Recommendations from medical experts. This includes doctors, managers from hospitals and professionals in the health care industry.
A lot of parameters made sure this component is significant: Like Self recommendations were excluded, nearly 100 000 votes ensured a sufficient sample size and there were several survey periods.
The second variable were Medical KPIs, such as data on patient safety, the quality provided for different specific treatments, staffing data (how many doctors or nurses per patient are available). Those data were available and accessible in a sufficient manner for certain countries to which Austria counted. This means that the high score of the Wiener Privatklinik is very meaningful.
Last but not least Existing Patient satisfaction data were taken into account when ranking hospitals for being awarded.
Typically the data for the surveys used for this metrics were from insurance companies which evaluated patients after their stay.
Those surveys and analysis included variables like: Satisfaction with the hospital, Recommendation of the hospital, medical care satisfaction such as the experience with service and organization.
Important when talking about the composition of the rankings is the fact that they are only comparable for hospitals within the same country.
Different sources for e.g. patient experience and medical KPIs could be used for the evaluation of the individual countries, the data access and complexity differed from country to country which means the data could not be harmonized internationally, let alone intercontinental.
