Researchers investigated whether patients admitted to accredited US hospitals have better outcomes vs those admitted to hospitals through state surveys. They did not observe any attenuated mortality in relation to US hospital accreditation by independent organizations; however, this was found to be slightly related to attenuated readmission rates for the 15 common medical conditions selected in this study.
