[Source: The Arizona Republic] – Banner Health and Mayo Clinic both ranked among the nation’s top 10 health systems based on measures of clinical performance, according to a study by Thomson Reuters.

The report compared 255 health systems across the nation based on eight clinical measures of quality and efficiency. Thomson Reuters found significant differences among top- and lower-ranked health systems on measures such as mortality, medical complications, patient safety, length of stay and readmission rates.

The survey was based on data reported to the federal agency that oversees Medicare and Medicaid. It also included information from a patient survey sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
