The Joint Commission released its sixth annual report on quality and safety, Improving America's Hospitals. For the first time, the 2011 report lists hospitals and critical access hospitals that are top performers in using evidence-based care processes closely linked to positive patient outcomes. The report presents scientific evidence of hospital performance and how it relates to common medical conditions and procedures and demonstrates continual improvement on accountability measures over a nine-year period.
