This systematic review sought to identify a consistently used definition of a high-performing health system. Less than 20% of the included studies defined patient safety as an aspect of high performance. In a related editorial, Dr. Peter Pronovost asserts that inconsistency in defining high performance reflects the need to focus on the purpose of health care in order to achieve transformative improvement.
