THE WEEK-HANSA Research Survey- Best Hospitals
THE WEEK-HANSA Research Survey on India’s best hospitals was conducted in 16 cities—Delhi & NCR, Lucknow, Ludhiana, Jaipur, Chennai, Coimbatore, Kochi, Thiruvananthapuram, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Pune, Nagpur and Indore.
All hospitals with a minimum of 100 beds, which have completed at least 2 years of being operational, and which have received 5 per cent or more of the total nominations from physicians were included in the survey.
All pathology labs and imaging centres, which have received 5 per cent or more of the total nominations from physicians, radiologists and pathologists were considered.
The ranking protocol:
Until last year, rankings were based solely on a reputational survey conducted among health care experts. But this year’s survey has taken factual data into account in the rankings. A primary survey was conducted among 917 experts—328 general physicians, 442 specialists and 147 pathologists/radiologists.
A questionnaire was given to the experts asking them to nominate and rate the top five multi-speciality hospitals in India and within their city. Specialists were asked to nominate and rate the top five hospitals for their specialisation. All experts in the top six metros nominated the top five pathology laboratories and imaging centres in their city.
Apart from this, 77 qualitative interviews that went beyond nominations and ratings were also done to get an in-depth understanding of the reasons for the rankings.
