Chex Awards by Quantros are based on our patent-pending quality scoring system, which compares inpatient quality performance across all general, acute care, non-federal hospitals in the nation.
Relying on both public and proprietary measures of performance, CareChex compares the quality of hospital and physician care to national and state standards using a variety of clinical indicators to assign a proprietary Composite Quality Score and Rating¹. Unlike other rating systems, CareChex provides a multidimensional, integrated analysis of medical quality.

Why is CareChex® by Quantros superior to other quality rating methods?
CareChex Awards by Quantros utilizes a medically-meaningful risk-adjustment methodology to more reliably measure rates of mortality, complications and readmissions — appropriately weighting and accounting for all of the risk factors relating to a patient’s principal and secondary diagnosis, as well as other patient characteristics that may increase the probability for adverse clinical outcomes. These rankings do not include any self-reported data.
