Once again in 2023, the American magazine Newsweek revealed its ranking of the best hospitals in the world, sorted by specialties, based on research by Statista. Several French Healthcare Association member hospitals feature in this ranking.
Patient satisfaction at the heart of hospital quality assessment
An online study conducted by data organization Statista surveyed over 80,000 healthcare professionals, gathering their opinions on various internationally renowned hospitals.
The team also analyzed datasets about patients’ satisfaction, and other indicators that reflect the quality and reputation of the hospitals in contention. Above all, they took into account the recommendations of health experts, and the added value delivered by these hospitals for the patients, an indicator assessed, for example, using specific Patient-Reported Outcome Measures questionnaires. Indeed, as Statista points out, this ranking needed to meet the requirements of contemporary healthcare, involving the patient-focused approaches of modern care pathways. These results thus demonstrate the expertise of hospitals in different specialties, but also their ability to put the improvement of patient well-being as a priority in their quality approach.
At last, over 50,000 hospitals worldwide were evaluated by a panel of medical experts at Statista, who reinforce their scientific methodology every year. The conclusions of this study were published in Newsweek magazine, in the form of a ranking for each specialty. International recommendations and the national reputation of these hospitals were then used to propose a more general ranking, presenting the 250 best hospitals in the world.
