Template matching is a suggested method for hospital benchmarking, which measures results based on a subset of comparable patient hospitalizations from each hospital. Observational cohort study. We investigated the potential to produce the required matched samples and, as a result of template matching to benchmark hospital results in a diverse healthcare system. Although most other variables could be balanced, we were unable to find a matching algorithm that could fit hospitals on any of the clinical characteristics that are potentially relevant to benchmarking.
