Constructing a composite quality score for the care of acute myocardial infarction patients at discharge : impact on hospital ranking

Abstract : OBJECTIVE: To determine the impact on hospital ranking of different aggregation methods when creating a composite score from a set of quality indicators relating to a single clinical condition. CONCLUSION: Hospital ranking varied widely according to 5 aggregation methods. If one method has to be chosen, for instance for reporting to governments, regulatory agencies, payers, health care professionals, and the public, it is necessary to provide its rationale and characteristics, and information on score uncertainty.
