- Patient Experience: survey of patient satisfaction with hospitalization
- Patient Reported Outcome Measures: surveys measuring patient satisfaction with hospitals
- Hospital Quality Metrics: patient safety, hygiene measures, waiting times and quality of treatment
The awards list was announced March 1 and can be viewed on Newsweek’s website.
