U.S. News will be hosting an invitation-only, pre-conference meeting and luncheon to engage in dialogue with healthcare leaders on a range of issues related to the future of the Best Hospitals rankings. U.S. News and RTI methodologists will meet with executives from a diverse group of invited general acute-care hospitals to solicit feedback on the methodologies U.S. News used to evaluate care of adult patients in the adult Specialty rankings and Procedures & Conditions ratings. U.S. News staff will present a recap of recent Best Hospitals methodology changes and outline potential future directions.

This event is full. While there won’t be the same opportunity for dialogue, much of the same information about the U.S. News team’s plans will also be shared at the session: Inside the U.S. News Best Hospitals Rankings on Tuesday, Nov. 19, which is open to all Healthcare of Tomorrow attendees.
