If all preterm infants had been treated in such hospitals then mortality for the entire group would likely have been lower. This primary result must not be overshadowed by more detailed results. The heterogeneity of hospitals with 30 or more cases is, however, considerable. If the quality results were known for individual hospitals, it might be assumed that—if timely data were available and quality results were consistent over t...
