To establish a percentile ranking, PRC compares your data to our national normative database, which is compiled on an annual basis. Requirements to achieve the 50th or 90th percentile this year are usually different than last year and will likely be different next year. As hospitals across the country continue to improve, your hospital may need to increase its score just to maintain the ranking it had in a previous year.
