As per the latest analysis report of Leapfrog Group, hospital selection can increase survival chances up to 23 percent in four high risk surgeries.
Leapfrog Group and Cast light Health Inc carried out a research to determine the role of hospital in survival rate. They accumulated data of around 1,500 hospitals and assessed their services for four major surgeries.
Astonishingly, researchers of non-profit organization found that choice of hospital can create a difference of life and death.
Eric Mobley, spokeswoman of Leapfrog, discussed benefits of the research in detail. She notifies that the primary objective of the research is to inform public regarding the significance of good hospitals.
Generally, the survival rate in pancreatecotomy is around 81 to 100 percent. Researcher reveals that 203 out of 487 hospitals’ survival rates are nearly 91.3 percent.
In comparison, chances of survival in heart’s arotic valve surgery are commonly ranged from 92 percent to 97 percent. However, only 95 of 544 hospitals reported reached the mark of 95.6 percent in this surgery.
Dr. Ashish Jha, health professor at the Harvard School of Public Health, remarked on the outcome of the study. She informs that the findings are quite startling. It indicates that the rate of mortality in common surgeries is directly related to the selection of hospitals.
