The 84 UC Health clinicians who ranked as the top 1% in the nation received consistent scores of 9 or 10 on 30 or more patient survey responses in 2018. Press Ganey advises measuring against no less than 30 survey responses per provider to ensure consistency and accuracy.

The ratings are defined by Press Ganey’s Clinician and Group Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CG-CAHPS) survey, a nationally standardized tool to measure patient perceptions of care delivered by a provider in an office setting. Specifically, these rankings apply to the CG-CAHPS survey question that asks patients to rate a provider on a scale of 0 to 10 (10 being the best score possible).

These high-ranking scores are a testament to the outstanding care UC Health clinicians provide every day. As an accountable and transparent organization, UC Health not only continuously reviews, shares and goal-sets in alignment with patient experience, they proudly display real patient comments and experience levels on our own website, uchealth.com.
