Statista PROMs implementation survey
To account for the increasing importance of value-based care in healthcare systems worldwide, Statista is surveying hospitals regarding their Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) implementation status. PROMs are defined as standardized, validated questionnaires completed by patients to measure their perception of their functional well-being and quality of life related to an episode or experience of care.
Newsweek and Statista recognize the importance of this topic for global advancements in health care delivery and, together with the guidance of Statista’s global board of medical experts, have developed a survey about the implementation and use of PROMs across different specialties and departments in hospitals. The implementation of PROMs adds a patient-outcome focused dimension and improves the comprehensiveness of the rankings.
The survey cycle for the new edition of the PROMs implementation survey is live and open for participation until December 18th, 2023. Responses from the survey will be incorporated into all hospital rankings of 2024.

600 unique hospitals
Four data sources were evaluated to identify the nation’s leading hospitals. Statista R conducted a national online survey of health care professionals to collect recommendations of the best hospitals in the US. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) data and accreditation data were used to determine the quality of care provided by each hospital. Patient experience data based on The Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey and National Patient Safety Goals from The Joint Commission (TJC) were included to determine the performance in patient satisfaction. Additionally, the PROMs implementation survey was conducted by Statista to assess the PROMs implementation status of hospitals.
From June to July 2023, thousands of health care professionals (doctors, hospital managers and other healthcare professionals) were invited by Statista and Newsweek to participate in an online survey to recommend hospitals in their respective states (with the option to recommend hospital out of state). Recommendations for own employer were not allowed. For each hospital in their own state, participants were asked to assess the quality of: quality of care offered, staffing, patient counselling and accommodation & amenities. The quality scale ranged from 1 (“Poor”) to 10 (“Excellent”). Data on hospital quality metrics and patient experience from publicly available sources was evaluated as well.
The evaluation of the hospitals was based on a scoring model including four pillars: Reputation score (40%), Hospital quality metrics score (40%), Patient experience score (17,5%) and a PROMs implementation score (2,5%).
