AHI's vice chairman and managing director Ramakant Panda said the hospital was accorded the honour among 15 hospitals in eight countries that participated in the International Cardiac Benchmarking survey conducted by the Joint Commission International (JCI).

"This included data analysis of more than 6000 cardiac surgeries between October 2009-March 2011," Panda told IANS here.

The 15 JCI accredited hospitals had to provide data captured on a daily basis on the surgeries conducted and reported, set parameters to measure the quality of care provided and cooperate with verification visits by principals, said Panda, who performed heart surgery on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh nearly three years ago.

"After the detailed three-year study, AHI has ranked No.1 in terms of 'lowest complication rates' and 'highest survival rates' as per the JCI survey," he said.
