Methodology

ARCHIMEDICX has developed a holistic methodology that enables the comparison of hospital performance across hundreds of medical procedures and treatments. Our unique approach utilizes multiple factors generating truly unbiased results:

  • Our research was focused on identifying the multiple factors which influence the treatment and procedure outcome.
  • The evidence-based methodology makes use of factors which directly or indirectly impact hospital performance, irrespective of the hospital location.
  • The factors cover the entire scope of hospital performance by analyzing the hospital’s structure, activity volume, research, process, and treatment outcome.
  • Each organizational layer – hospital, department and medical procedure - is analyzed separately by its relevant factors.

Ranking and Rating algorithm

Based on our methodology, we developed a unique algorithm that generates a Procedure Rating Score and Hospital Ranking Score

Patient Centric Search Engine

Using our ranking algorithm and independent data sources, we created a unique search engine dedicated to assist patients and their family members to locate the best hospital for the treatment in question.
