To help consumers evaluate and compare hospital performance in gynecologic surgery, Healthgrades analyzed patient outcome data for all patients (all-payer data) made available by 17 individual states for years 2013 through 2015. Healthgrades found that there is a significant variation in hospital quality for gynecologic surgery.
- From 2013 through 2015, patients treated in hospitals receiving the Gynecologic Surgery Excellence Award, had, on average, a 47.6% lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive the Gynecologic Surgery Excellence Award.*
- From 2013 through 2015, if all hospitals in the 17 states included in this analysis, as a group, performed similarly to hospitals receiving the Gynecologic Surgery Excellence Award, on average, 15,557 in-hospital complications could potentially have been avoided.*
